Annual National Carers Week will take place from June 10th to 16th this year.

Over 160 events will take place nationwide to celebrate and recognise the role of Ireland’s Family Carers.

RTÉ Presenter Nuala Carey who is supporting the week says:

“I know all too well how important family carers are, enabling people to continue to live at home. The week is a fantastic celebration of the contribution carers make to our loved ones’ lives and it’s an opportunity for us all to do something extra special for Family Carers in our community”

There are 9 National Organisations who are partners in the week and will be organising events around the country to acknowledge the valuable work and contribution that Family Carers make not only to their individual families but Irish society itself.

Partners this year are; The Carers Association of Ireland, Caring for Carers Ireland, The Alzheimer Society of Ireland, The Disability Federation of Ireland, Parkinson’s Association of Ireland, Bri, MS Ireland, The Irish Hospice Foundation and Care Alliance Ireland.
