Carers Week 2024 

Carers Week runs from Monday 10 June until Sunday 16 June 2024. The week aims to raise awareness of caring, highlighting the challenges family and friend carers face, and acknowledge the huge contribution carers make. 

It’s also a time to help people who don’t think of themselves as carers, to identify as carers and then access much-needed support. 

This year, Action for Carers Surrey has chosen to focus on ‘Looking after you’ – helping carers to prioritise just a little time for themselves, for self-care. Caring can be stressful, isolating and hard work. They will be running sessions to help carers share what works best for them in terms of wellbeing, and launching a new booklet - ‘Relaxation for Carers’, which is full of practical exercises that can be done in a short time, to help restore energy and calm. 

Action for Carers Surrey will also be holding celebratory events and activities at 10 of their drop-in hubs, plus additional in-person and online events, looking to recognise and celebrate Surrey’s carers. There are now 15 hubs (the latest starting in Merstham), plus an online offer of support groups and events which include mindfulness, relaxation and yoga via Zoom, for those carers unable to leave home.
