LloydsPharmacy National Carers Awards 2016

Let’s take time to thank the carers in our lives

Here at LloydsPharmacy we know, first-hand, about the amazing work unpaid carers do. We know because one in every five1 of our customers who come through our pharmacy doors are looking after someone. They may be a relative, a friend or a neighbour who needs help picking up their medicine, or more involved, round-the-clock care. No matter how big or small, a carer’s support can make all the difference in helping a loved one get the most out of life.

This is why we launched the LloydsPharmacy National Carers Awards in 2014, and why we have teamed-up with the charity Carers UK to run the awards again for a third year. We want to continue to raise awareness of, and pay tribute to, the approximately 6.5 million unpaid carers across the UK.

Carers Week 2016

This is an annual campaign that helps raise awareness of caring and shines the spotlight on the challenges that carers, and young carers face. Their contribution to families and communities is recognised.

The LloydsPharmacy National Carers Awards 2016 will highlight the joys and challenges of caring and will honour carers’ huge contribution to communities across England, Scotland and Wales.
