A campaign to recognise the vital role of carers across Wales is being supported by local Senedd Member Paul Davies. Mr Davies is supporting Carers Week 2021, a national campaign to raise awareness of caring and to highlight the challenges unpaid carers face across the country.
For Carers Week 2021 charity Carers UK is joining forces with Age UK, Carers Trust, Motor Neurone Disease Association, Oxfam GB and Rethink Mental Illness to help raise awareness of caring around the country. The six charities driving Carers Week 2021 are calling on individuals, services and organisations to do their part in Making Caring Visible and Valued – recognising the contribution made by carers and helping them get the practical, financial and emotional support they need to care for a loved one.
Mr Davies said, “I’m very honoured to support Carers Week and do what I can to highlight the important contribution that carers make in Pembrokeshire and beyond. It’s vital that we all do what we can to support carers in our local communities and I’ll certainly raise the profile of carers by asking questions to Government Ministers and campaigning for more support for local services. The theme of this year’s campaign is to Make Caring Visible and Valued and so I hope that everyone across Pembrokeshire will join me in thanking our local carers for everything they do and take the opportunity this week to get involved and support Carers Week 2021.”
