Carers Week 2013 will kick start on Monday 10 June. With your help, Macmillan hopes it will be the biggest yet.
As reported in the winter 2012 edition of Mac Voice, many people who look after someone with cancer don’t identify themselves as carers, and aren’t accessing the support available to them. This year, Carers Week is asking people if they are ‘prepared to care’, and letting them know that support is available for all stages of caring. It’s the ideal opportunity to let carers know that Macmillan is here to help.
Many of you may already have plans to host events for carers and patients. But if this is your first experience of taking part, it couldn’t be easier to get involved.
As well as making a difference to the lives of carers, taking part can have many other benefits. Holding an event is a great way of raising the profile of your service, attracting new visitors and gaining local media coverage. And it’s also a perfect opportunity to network with other professionals and demonstrate the value of your service.
Free resources and support
You can access free promotional posters, a step-by-step guide to running an event and a range of information resources for your displays and events at be.Macmillan.
