Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges unpaid carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK. It also helps people who don’t think of themselves as having caring responsibilities to identify as carers and access much-needed support. The Welsh Ambulance Service are hosting a series of events during Carers Week and details can be found below. All videos/messages will be available through @WelshAmbulance on Twitter and also Facebook.
