National Carers Week 10th-16th June 2024

This week is dedicated to raise awareness of some of the challenges carers face and the impact caring can have on all aspects of life including health and wellbeing. It also recognises and values the unpaid support and contribution unpaid carers make but locally and nationally.

The theme this year is “ putting carers on the map”

Carers UK: 82% of carers said the impact of caring on their physical and mental health would be a challenge over the coming year. 60% said being valued as a carer would improve their wellbeing.

We at the Wellness Service will be joining our partners including Carers Count and Carers Trust at a number of events for carers throughout the week.

The Wellness service are delivering sessions for carers:

-Caring for Someone with Memory Problems: Tuesday 11th June 1:00pm-3:00pm at Huddersfield Fire Station

-Building Resilience Session exploring emotional wellbeing for carers: Thursday 13th June 11:15am-12:45pm at The Crescent Batley in partnership with Carers Count.
