Coventry Carers' bulletin

Welcome to this Carers' Week Special Bulletin

Welcome to this extra Carers' Week Bulletin. Carers' Week is a week to shout loud and proud about the role of unpaid carers.  

This years Carers' Week is around raising the visibility of caring in our society and making sure that those who do care feel valued and their choices respected.  

Pete Fahy – Director of Adult Social Care & Housing: “Not only do carers provide on-going care for a loved one, carers make on-going sacrifices to make sure they can care, giving up time, work and sometimes valued relationships.

At Coventry City Council we are dedicated to supporting carers well, we work closely with the Carers' Trust Heart of England to achieve this. We are supporting Carers' Week because it's an important opportunity to raise the visibility of caring, something we are all likely to do in our lifetime but often when people take on a caring role it can be hard to know where to turn for support and it can feel like an isolating experience'.
