These events coincide with Carers Rights Day on 25th November 2021. This is a National awareness day to provide unpaid Carers with up-to-date information to help support and empower them in their role.
Action for Carers also have two other fairs at Redhill and Guildford, more information can be found here.
Research by Carers UK reveals that there has been an increase in unpaid Carers since the start of the pandemic. There are now an estimated 11.5 million people caring for a family member on a regular basis.
We know that caring is time consuming and often exhausting and it can be difficult to find sources of information and respite if you require it. Please talk to us about how we can support you.
