March: Young Carers Action Day

Young Carers Action Day is a national day raising awareness of young carers and the incredible contribution they make to their families and local communities.

Our Young Carers Team works with young carers to raise awareness in Swindon and to mark this day every year.

Young Carers Action Day 2024 took place on March 13th with the theme “fair futures for young carers”. Click here to see what we got up to.

June: Carers Week

Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlighting the vital role carers play looking after children, parents, partners and friends. It also helps people who don’t think of themselves as having caring responsibilities to identify as carers and access much-needed support.

During Carers Week, Swindon Carers Centre holds its annual fundraising Walk A Mile event. This event aims to raise awareness and to boost funds, allowing us as a charity to increase support for unpaid carers in Swindon.

In addition, this year we are pleased to announce a new fundraising event titled  ‘Walk a Mile a Day in May’. A special event in collaboration with our Walk a Mile campaign, part of Carers Week.
