Caring for someone living with a mental illness can be a rewarding role, but also a tough one. Many people don’t even realise they are carers, as they just see it as part of their role supporting a loved one. During Carers Week which occurs annually in June, we want to celebrate everything they do. And to remind them we are here to support and fight for them too.

Unpaid carers save the country £193 billion every year. Let that sink in for a minute. It’s almost the cost of a second NHS.

While it is important to recognise the impact of unpaid carers in financial terms, the people behind the numbers matter most. Their stories of love. Of compassion. Of care.

Carers Week 2024 will take place 10-16 June and the theme is: Putting carers on the map. 

Along with our friends at Carers UK, Age UK, MND, and Carers Trust, our mission is to amplify the experiences and stories of carers.

It's time the amazing, unseen work carers do gets put on the map.
