Join us this National Carers Week to celebrate the vital role of Family Carers in Ireland, and to help Make Caring Visible!
Carers Week takes place from Monday 13 – Sunday 19 June 2022. This is a joint initiative of 10 national partner organisations, led by Care Alliance Ireland, who together want to take this particular opportunity to celebrate and acknowledge the role of Family Carers in Irish society.
To mark Carers Week, our On With Life Carers and Families Programme will offer four free virtual events, open to all and free of charge. The events have been developed to create space and time for Carers to reflect, rest and recharge.
Registration is open now: Secure your place here.
