Carers’ Awareness Day is a one-day event during which we promote and strengthen the wellbeing of carers through education and mutual support. The sessions, which occur at several locations around the country, cover what a brain injury is; what helps; emotional adjustment to acquired brain injury; minding yourself.

National Carers’ Strategy 2012

The National Carers’ Strategy 2012 was the first of its kind in Ireland. The strategy recognises the value and contribution of carers. It states that they should be included in decisions relating to the person they are caring for. It sets out a series of goals, including the need to recognise the needs of carers through the provision of income supports. It states that carers should be supported in managing their physical, mental and emotional

health and well-being. Carers should be supported to “care with confidence” through the provision of adequate information, training and services and should be empowered to participate as fully as possible in economic and social life. The Cabinet sub-committee on social policy, which is chaired by An Taoiseach, Mr Enda Kenny, will monitor the progress of the strategy.
