There will be a number of activities in Hunstanton and Lynn to mark Carers Week this June.

Carers Week is an annual awareness campaign to celebrate and recognise the vital contribution made by the UK's 6.5 million carers.

Harry Humphrey supported this charity in his term as mayor and the theme for the week is to make caring visible, valued and supported.

Sara Nurse, young carers and families service lead at West Norfolk Carers said: "Carers Week starts on Monday, June 6, and on that day we will be at Hunstanton Community Centre for our dementia cafe, cuddly Cavies Guinea pigs will be joining us.

"On Wednesday, June 8 we will be doing a pop up at The Place in New Conduit Street from 10am-2pm to identify hidden carers and encourage them to get support."

West Norfolk Carers believe that unpaid carers and the challenges of caring should be recognised in all areas of life.

Caring should be valued and respected by everyone in society, and carers should have access to the information and support they need, where and when they need it.

Each day of Carers Week will have a different focus with issues such as health and social care, work and employment, younger and older carers, mental health and wellbeing and ending the week on Sunday with a reflection of the week.
