Carers Week 2016 will take place from Monday 6th to Sunday 12 June 2016. This year the focus is on building Carer Friendly Communities, which support carers to look after their loved ones well, while recognising that they are individuals with needs of their own. Luggie would like to acknowledge and support any individuals looking after family and friends who are older, ill or who have a disability? We offer home demonstrations of our portable mobility scooter and can share some great experiences where we have helped others maintain independence and confidence to get out and see more of the world.
Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges unpaid carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK.
