Carers' week 2018

Running from 11 to 17 June, the 2018 Carers week will help recognise the vital contribution made by 6.5 million people who currently provide unpaid care in the UK. As people live longer, often with complex health conditions, more and more of us will become carers for a family member or friend. It is estimated that by 2037 there will be nine million carers. The week-long celebration of the enormous contribution that unpaid carers make to our communities will also be a time of intensive local activity, with awareness raising events taking place across the county.
 

Richard Webb, North Yorkshire County Council’s Corporate Director of Health and Adult Services, said “There are about 65,000 people in North Yorkshire across all age groups who identify themselves as providing unpaid care - more than one in ten people. Looking after a loved one affected by physical or mental health ill health can be hugely rewarding, but without the right support many carers put their own needs last. Getting the right support at the right time is therefore crucial, for both carers and the people they care for.”
 

Caring for Carers 2017-2022 is the strategy produced by the Health and Wellbeing Board for North Yorkshire working on behalf of local residents, which brings together the insight and expertise of health and social care professionals and the experience of carers in the County – it is aimed at supporting carers to both continue caring and to have a life of their own.
