This week is #CarersWeek2021, 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. This applies to the many family members caring for a loved one with a drug, alcohol or gambling problem.
#CarersWeek2021 is taking place from 7-13 June. Find out more about how you can get involved: https://www.carersweek.org
