Carers Week 2017 - thank you!

Thank you to all the carers who came and took part in Carers Week at the Carers Support Centre this year.

We had more events this year than ever before, with a visit from the Mayor of Croydon, massage, art, vintage afternoon tea, talks, the Carers’ Information Day and much more.

About Carers Week

Carers Week is an annual national campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK. This year, Carers Week focused on building carer friendly communities. Carer friendly communities support carers to look after their loved ones well, while recognising that they are individuals with needs of their own.
