The Carers Week partnership of nine national charities was formed in 2001 and over the years has grown to include more than 1,200 local partners.
It is a chance to recognise and celebrate the contribution that the UK's six million carers make to those they care for and to their communities.
During the week thousands of events and activities will take place in order to raise awareness of carers' roles. In turn, it is hoped that these events will influence and inform the likes of MPs and healthcare professionals to secure increased resources for carers from central and local government.
