DCA will be highlighting the work of carers during National Carers Week – 6th to 12th June 2016

    National Carers Week is a UK-wide annual awareness campaign taking place from Monday 6th to Sunday 12th June 2016, highlighting the vital contribution made by the UK’s 6.5 million Carers – to their families and communities – in providing unpaid care for someone who is ill, frail or disabled.

    By providing unpaid care for someone, Carers save the economy an incredible £119 billion per year – that’s the same cost as running the NHS.

    Despite this – and the fact that 3 in 5 people will be Carers at some point in their lives – Carers often face a lack of recognition in all areas of their lives.

    This years Carers Week aims to be the greatest ever opportunity to reach out to Carers in the UK.

    It’s aim is to improve the lives of Carers and the people they care for by raising the profile of Carers and recognising the contribution they make; helping people identify themselves as Carers and enabling them to access the support, advice and information they need. It will also highlight the challenges of caring and campaign for sustainable funding for services and support for Carers and the people they care for.

    As part of Carers Week, DCA will encourage communities and organisations to work together to reach as many carers as possible.

    We have been supporting Carers for over 27 years and following previous success, we are marking this years Carers Week by organising a host of events all across the county including bingo, a Carers Service at Derby City Cathedral and a Pamper Day in South Normanton plus much more.
