Carers Week 2022

28th June 2022

HomeNewsCarers Week 2022

We ran lots of exciting events for carers during Carers Week (6 – 12 June 2022).

For adult carers, we ran a Carers Rights workshop, a Carers Walk and a virtual Carers Coffee Morning. We also gave a presentation and staffed a stall at NHS Salford CCG’s Carers Week Event, and delivered a Carers Awareness session at Langworthy Cornerstone for Age UK Salford’s Lunch and Learn Group.

For young carers we delivered Carer Awareness training in school assemblies, and livestreamed a Zen Zone taster session of meditation and mindfulness to 100+ students in Salford and Manchester schools.

We took a group of young carers on a nature walk and to a poetry workshop at Lancashire Wildflower Trust. They wrote some incredible poems which were showcased at Kendal Poetry Festival from 23 – 26 June.

We rounded off the week with Carers Fest; a day to celebrate carers across Greater Manchester. It was wonderful to connect with so many carers, continue to raise awareness, and fight for carers to be visible, valued and supported.
