This year, Carers Week is taking place from 7th to 13th June 2021. The theme this year is 'Making Carers Visible and Valued'.
This annual campaign raises awareness of the challenges which unpaid carers face, as well as highlighting the valuable contribution they make to their families and our society. There are around 6.5 million carers across the UK who deserve this recognition.

A message to carers from Kirklees Council:
"Sit back, have a cuppa, and relax – you’ve earned it! On behalf of the Council I’d like to express my heartfelt thanks to you for the care and support you provide, it doesn’t go unnoticed. Every effort big and small adds up to improving someone’s quality of life and that is admirable. Thank you." - Richard Parry, Strategic Director for Adults and Health
