Carers Week 2016
Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges Carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK. This year Carers Week is focusing on building Carer Friendly Communities. Communities which support carers to look after their family or friends well, while recognising that they are individuals with needs of their own. People can get involved by recommending organisations, services and employers who are already Carer friendly and inviting other organisations to use the checklist to commit to becoming Carer friendly. Building Carer Friendly Communities is not instant, but we’ll get there – brick by brick
Out and About
Look for n-compass Workers out and about in Doctors’ Surgeries across Central, West and North Lancashire during Carers Week; celebrating Carers and raising awareness of the importance of Carer Friendly Communities.
A Big ‘Thank You’!
Come meet other Carers and an n-compass Carers’ Support Worker at your local Coffee and Chat during June 2016 as we would like to offer you a cake or other treat to say thank you personally for what you do in your caring role.
