Carers Fest is back!

Inspired by a carer who said they’d like a celebration event for carers up north, we ran our first Carers Fest in 2019. The event was created in collaboration with carers, Gaddum and partner organisations, and hosted in Greater Manchester.

It offered carers and those cared for, of all ages to enjoy a break from their responsibilities to have fun, make friends and have their voices heard on issues affecting them.

Whilst the pandemic has affected our plans to run Carers Fest the last two years, we’re excited to say that Carers Fest is back for 2022 and taking place during Carers Week!

The event will take place on Saturday 11 June 2022 from 11am – 4pm at a venue to be confirmed. Watch this space and keep an eye on our social media channels for more details.

Carers – Have Your Say!

If you’re a carer or former carer, this is your chance to have your say on what you would like Carers Fest 2022 to include!

We want to design the event with you so would love to hear any thoughts or ideas you have.

You can get involved in a number of ways. E.g. filling out any surveys on here, answering questions and polls on our social media, emailing us at or calling us at 0161 834 6069 with your views.

We look forward to hearing from you.
