Carers Week (7 to 13 June) is an annual national initiative to raise awareness about unpaid caring, challenges the unpaid carers face, and recognition of the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK. It also helps people who don’t think of themselves as having caring responsibilities to identify as carers and access much-needed support. In this blog, Mollie Delaney, Sharon Hammond and Kemi Bandele- Forbes from Camden Carers, talk about the various initiatives the team at Camden Carers have taken during the pandemic to support unpaid carers.
Volunteers make a huge difference to our work, and we could not do what we do without them. The team of Healthwatch Camden recognises the vital role that the volunteers play and the impact they have had on the community. We are incredibly grateful for their hard work, determination, and the skillset they bring to the team, especially during this exceptionally difficult year. Thank You to all our amazing volunteers.Read More
