To celebrate National Carers Week 18-24 June, Hillingdon Carers in conjunction with The London Borough of Hillingdon and The Mall Pavilions hold an annual Carers Fair. This year 2012, the event will be held on Tuesday 19th June between 10.00am and 5.00pm in The Mall Pavilions Shopping Centre in Uxbridge.

Carers Week is a UK-wide annual awareness campaign. During the week the UK’s six million unpaid carers are celebrated and recognised for the contribution they make to those they care for, and to their communities.

In 2012 the areas highlighted in the campaign will be the health and well-being of carers, cuts to local services does have a knock on effect on the health and well being of unpaid carers and recognition by professionals and by others who impact on carers day-to-day lives can help to make a massive difference.

Hillingdon Carers Fair has been attended by  Home Instead Ruislip and Harrow office for the last 4 years and we have been pleased and honoured to be one of the 30 plus stall holders providing support and advice to the local community.
