What is Carers Week?
Why get involved?
How to get involved? We’ve made it easy for you.
After Umbrage is joining the national conversation taking place across the UK for Carers Week 2021. We’d like you to join us too. This page is devoted to Carers Week and makes it easy for you to get involved. It includes material you can share across social media platforms with the expressed aim of recognising, respecting, and supporting unpaid carers. We want to raise awareness of the amazing work they do for their loved ones and the huge contribution they make to the UK economy. It is the equivalent of a second NHS no less.

Story One – Atiq Hassan
Story Two – The Thompson Family
Story Three – Kingham Cottage Poem, by Sarah Porter
A beautiful sanctuary full of bliss
a time to breathe, a space to be
a cradle of comfort for my family and me
built of stone, supported by oak
you give out strength to caring folk
like an old friend who listens and gives a hug
my memory and you shall not be apart
