This year’s Carers’ Week (Monday 7th to Sunday 13th June 2021) will see our Trust offering different, relaxed and friendly virtual events each day where people can tap in and see their local and then Trust wide offers. It will be hosted by a different Trust Carer Lead on each day and will feature carers sharing their stories, support available to carers and a range of guest speaker organisations. Join us for as many of the sessions you would like and feel would benefit you. The Microsoft Teams links for each session will be shared closer to Carers’ Week, available on this events page, as well as our South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust carers’ pages.
