Today marks the start of carers week, we have made a conscious decision not to bang drums, ring bells or shout it from the roof tops! Every week is carers week for our families caring for a family member with a learning disability, this week is no different.

What we will do this week is share things that we think are relevant starting with the report No Choice But To Care: “Millions of unpaid carers across the UK provide support to a family member, friend or neighbour due to a disability, illness or frailty due to old age. Yet a majority of unpaid carers have no choice but to take on a caring role. While providing unpaid care can be rewarding, it also comes with significant negative impacts on carersโ€™ lives.”

Essex Carers Network supports the annual Carers Week campaign. However every week is carers week for our families caring for a family member with a learning disability, and this week is no different.
We support family carers throughout the whole year. ๐Ÿฅฐ
