Carers Week 2020 – 8th to 14th June 2020

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Caring for someone can be both wonderful and tough at the same time, and during lockdown the wonderful job that many carers do, has in many cases, become tougher and more stressful.

Each year carers and other charities across the UK get together in a national carers week, with the aim of making caring more visible, celebrating the contribution carers make to families and communities throughout the UK.

We are very lucky in West Sussex to have a wonderful charity who work tirelessly to recognise and provide respite and help to carers.
And next week, Carers Support are joining the six national charities supporting Carers Week 2020 to bring some wonderful initiatives to West Sussex’s carers.

Carers Week 2020 will be different to all those that have come before.  COVID-19 has affected many and also affects the ability of carers to come together during their special week.  So with that in mind, Carers Support have created a dedicated section on their website, with blogs, competitions and virtual events.

At Bennett Griffin we work with, for, and alongside carers, caregivers and families in many capacities and as such we are only too pleased to help promote such a fantastic initiative.
