Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlighting the challenges unpaid carers face and recognising the contribution they make to families and communities. It also helps people who don’t think of themselves as having caring responsibilities to identify as carers and access much-needed support.
There are 33,000 carers of all ages here in Doncaster. They will be looking after a family member or friend who has a disability, mental or physical illness or who someone who needs extra help as they grow older. Caring can be a hugely rewarding experience but carers often find it challenging to take care of their own wellbeing. It impacts on all aspects of life from relationships and health, to finances and work should not be underestimated. Caring without the right information and support can be tough.
