For Croydon Council, it is National Couldn’t Care Less Week

Today marks the start of National Carers Week, which is supposed to be seven days of activities and events according to the Carers Week website, “to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges unpaid carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK”.

It is an annual campaign which is “brought to life by thousands of individuals and organisations who come together to organise activities and events throughout the UK, drawing attention to just how important caring is”.

But unable to find any information on the council’s website about Carers Week, we thought you’d like to see one of their publicity photographs of the council chief executive.
