Carers Week – Carers Stories & Poems
Have you got a story or poem to tell?
Life as a carer can be very rewarding but also very challenging and not everyone truly understands the role of a carer.
Whilst we understand the role can vary greatly from carer to carer, we’d love to be able to share real stories and poems that relate to what life is really like for carers.
Carers Week takes place from June 6th-12th 2022, so we’ve decided to run Carers Stories to celebrate this. We will upload the entries the following week.
About Carers Stories
For Carers Week 2022 we want to collect as many stories and poems as we can to showcase them on our website and social media. By sharing these it could help other carers like yourselves to come forward and get the help they need. It is also nice to hear from individuals as it gives us more of an idea of how hard but rewarding caring roles can be. Entries can be either a personal story written in your own words or a poem that is written by yourself that captures the reality of caring.
