Liverpool Carers Centre stands tall as a beacon of support for the estimated over 50,000 carers in Liverpool and the 6.5 million across the UK who selflessly provide unpaid care for loved ones.

As Carers Week 2024 approaches, with this year’s theme, ‘Putting Carers on the Map,’ Liverpool Carers Centre reaffirms its commitment to recognising, empowering, and celebrating carers through its comprehensive range of services.

The focus is on raising awareness of the challenges faced by carers and highlighting their invaluable contributions to society.

Established with the mission to enhance the quality of life for carers in Liverpool, Liverpool Carers Centre offers a variety of supportive services, including carers assessments and a flexible support service providing impartial advice, information, and signposting to specialist organisations tailored to individual needs and circumstances.

Hazel Brown MBE, Head of Communities at Liverpool Carers Centre, said:

“Carers Week is an opportunity to raise awareness of caring, highlighting the challenges unpaid carers face, and recognising the contribution they make.

“Caring for someone else can feel rewarding, but it can also be tiring, frustrating, lonely, and isolating.

“It is vitally important that carers remember to take care of themselves too, which is why raising awareness by ‘Putting Carers on the Map’ is so important.”

Carers Information Event – Monday 10th June

Liverpool Carers Centre invites carers to a special Carers Information Event on Monday, June 10th, at Liverpool Carers Centre (99 Edge Lane, Liverpool, L7 2PE).

The event will feature esteemed organisations including Brain Charity, Cadent Gas, Citizens Advice, Merseyside Fire & Police Service, Mersey Care NHS, Wills & Power of Attorney, and United Utilities. Attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in a Holistic Therapy session.

Liverpool Carers Centre extends its outreach efforts with pop-up information stands. These stands will provide convenient access to information, advice, and support for carers.
