Carers Week 10 – 16 June 2019
Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges unpaid carers face and recognise the contribution they make. It also helps people to identify themselves as carers and access much-needed support. The campaign is brought to life by thousands of individuals and organisations who come together to organise activities and events throughout the UK.

The theme for 2019 is ‘Getting Carers Connected in their communities’.
Dorset Council is encouraging and promoting carers activities and events across the county. If you can organise an activity or event, no matter how big or small, please let us know and help us to create a fantastic local offer for carers.
To support local activities the council has awarded over £1500 in small grants to community organisations. The council is delighted with over 30 planned events and would encourage all carers to find out about events across Dorset. The events include: information days, coffee mornings, fun days, day trips and more.
