Carers Week 2023

This year in Wigan and Leigh, Carers Week will be celebrated across two weeks from 30th May—11 June and the theme will be recognising and supporting carers in the community. We want communities across our Borough to come together to recognise the huge contribution unpaid carers make to society.


We are thrilled to announce an exciting new project that we have been working on over a number of months.  Our Carers Café Club brings together a network of local community cafés that offer warm and welcoming spaces for carers and their loved ones.

We will be hosting regular events in these venues to make accessing local support for carers (of all ages) even easier (something that findings from our carers survey identified). Carers will also be able to receive a free drink in these venues by showing their Emergency Carers Card.
