To mark Carers Week (8th to 14th June), Oxfordshire County Council (OCC) is celebrating the contribution carers make to families and communities across Oxfordshire.
A carer is someone who provides care and support to a family member or someone who has a disability, mental or physical illness, or who needs extra help as they grow older. There are around 6.5 million carers in the UK, looking after older, seriously ill or disabled people.
Carers need to be recognised for the difficulties they are experiencing and respected for all they are doing because there are a lot of people who are unpaid to perform carer duties.
See the OCC website for more information and pledge your support for carers today.
