Young Carers break!

Its Carers week! 7-12 June 2022

Carers week 2022 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 campaign is brought to life by thousands of individuals and organisations who come together to provide support for carers, run activities, highlight the vital role carers play in our communities and draw attention to just how important caring is.

ASNA is no exception. In 2005 we launched and hosted our first SYCAF activity week- Siblings, Young Cares And Friends - An action packed week for siblings of children with disabilities and young carers with parents or a relative with a disability, ill health or other caring responsibility.
