Many people don’t see themselves as a carer but carers are those who care, unpaid, for a friend or family member, who due to illness, disability, mental health problem or an addiction, cannot cope without their support.
Carers in Bedfordshire is helping to Make Caring Visible during Carers Week 2020.
This year, people across the country are continuing to face new challenges as a result of the coronavirus outbreak. Many people are taking on more caring responsibilities for their relatives and friends who are disabled, ill or older and who need support.
They need to be recognised for the difficulties they are experiencing, respected for all they are doing, and provided with information, support and understanding.
During Carers Week, Carers in Bedfordshire are coming together to help Make Caring Visible.
Please see our events page for what they have planned.
