Carers Week 2024: Celebrating Unpaid Carers in Dorset

Carers Week is just around the corner, and it’s time to recognise and celebrate the incredible contributions of unpaid carers in our community. From saving the economy millions to providing essential care for loved ones, Carers play a vital role. This year’s theme, “Putting Carers on the Map,” aims to raise awareness about the challenges they face and ensure better support for their needs.

Forward Carers have come together with some partners from our Carers Card Directory to create these events for you to enjoy!
