This May Carers NZ is undertaking New Zealand's first ever awareness campaign for family carers!
We will be raising awareness of carers and their important role in our Walk for Wellbeing campaign, following a group of Kiwi carers in their 'camino' pilgrimage from Portugal to Spain. They will walk 240 kilometres to recognise the often long journeys carers make supporting others, and to remind all carers that to go the distance, it's importance to have regular breaks ... time out to relax, maintain hobbies and friendships, and re-energise. Follow along here at the site, and at Facebook!
We are also planning a campaign to build recognition for children and young people in caring roles; stay tuned at Young Carers NZ's Facebook page!
