Carers week is coming

gaddum, a charity who operates carers services in Bury, Manchester and Salford are co-ordinating over 50 events locally for carers for national carers week.

Carers week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK
A carer is anyone who cares, unpaid, for a friend or family member who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction cannot cope without their support

This campaign is brought to life by thousands of individuals and organisations who come together to organise activities and events throughout the UK, drawing attention to just how important caring is
Only in January was gaddum, a leading Greater Manchester charity in working with carers signed the carers charter with leaders from across all local authorities with Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham
We are launching a range of films with our service Manchester Carers Network at our showcase event on Tuesday 12 June at HOME MCR with speeches from carers talking about their experiences

Other event highlights include:
• Art exhibition open to the public at Bury Carer’s Centre, created by carers who are part of the centre community

• Learn to Make Dumplings at Wai Yin Society

• Carers rights day at Humphrey Booth Centre

Lynne Stafford, Chief Executive of gaddum, Manchester Carers Network commented

‘’The coming together of gaddum’s carers services for national carers week showcases a small selection of our work in Bury, Manchester and Salford. Our events invite the community to learn about carers in Greater Manchester and celebrate the work un waged carers do, day in and day out.”
