Carers Week 2021

This week is Carer’s week and the theme is Make Caring Visible and Valued.

You may not even think of yourself as a carer but does any of the following apply? Are you helping a friend or family member due to their illness, disability, mental health issue or a substance misuse problem?
Yes? – Then you are one of 74,000 unpaid carers in Leeds

Carers Leeds can offer help and support to you,  if you have any questions or concerns, call their advice line Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm on 0113 380 4300. 

You can also find lots of information, as well as both online and face to face activities at Carers Leeds website
