Carers Week 2020

National Carers Week 2020 (8th to the 14th June)
Helping to Celebrat the work of the 40,000+ Carers on the Wirral

The theme for National Carers Week this year is Making caring visible

The Wired Carers Support Team provide support to Carers and vulnerable groups in our community.
We provide services to ensure Wirral’s 40,000 Carers received information, support and some recognition for the valuable work they do - day in day out. Please call the Wired Carers Helpline during office hours on 0151670 0777 or email cws@wired.me.uk for further information.

During this unprecedented period of the coronavirus pandemic our services to Carers have been adapted to work within the guidance for social distancing and the country’s lockdown.
This has been a two pronged approach – the first is a 1:1 telephone support to our most vulnerable carers (70+), to ensure that they feel recognised, supported and valued. The second has seen us develop an online Carers Wellbeing Check for all carers to complete, and so our Carers Week has also been adapted.

Monday 8th June

Carers Week 2020

DID YOU KNOW?
More than three million people
juggle care with work, however
the significant demands of
caring mean that 1 in 5 carers
are forced to give up work
altogether

DID YOU KNOW?
Every day another 6,000 people
take on a caring responsibility
– that equals over two million
people each year.

Carers often neglect their own
personal health needs because
of their caring role so this is an
opportunity for you to have some time out for yourself, whether you are a male or a female Carer.
