Carers Week 12-18 June
Carers Week celebrates the role of carers.
Carers Week Org came up with the concept of Carers Week to help build communities which support carers to look after their loved ones well, while recognising that they are individuals with their own needs. It has information about events and resources to help you set up an event and get involved in Carers Week 2017.
There are an estimated 24,000 carers in Milton Keynes. Carers MK understands how hard caring for another person can be. They are dedicated to supporting local people who care for others.
The Carers MK website has advice and information for carers, including counselling support.
There are an estimated 1,000 young carers in Milton Keynes. Young carers are 8-19 years old caring for a family member with a physical or mental illness, or disability who lives in the same household. Young Carers MK provides support to young carers, helping them to lead a fuller life.
