Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring and help people who don't think of themselves as having caring responsibilities to identify as carers and access much-needed support.
Each day will provide you with the opportunity to chat with other carers over a cuppa and to take part in different activities.

This year, Carers UK worked with six other charities to understand how unpaid carers identify in the UK.
And 75% of people in the UK, which equates to around 19 million people have not identified as a carer.
Moreover, just under one third (around 8 million people) felt their own health and wellbeing diminished as a result of their caring responsibilities.
We understand that caring for a family member or loved one is hard. Come and see us and we are ready to chat.
Don't lose sense of who you are because of changes to your sight
