Carers Active Hub

Welcome to the Carers Active Hub, a resource to help you to increase your activity levels and improve your health and wellbeing.

Carers Active April is back again in 2024!

The month-long campaign aims to raise awareness of the importance of physical activity for carers and highlight the benefits to carers of moving more. We believe that carers should be able to be active in a way that’s achievable, accessible, and affordable.

Carers often face a challenging time, and see their own health and wellbeing impacted by their caring responsibilities. Finding ways to improve carers’ health and wellbeing is crucial and this year’s campaign will be bigger and better, with even more professionals getting behind it.

Weekly Themes

Each week of Carers Active April 2024 will have a theme, which you may find useful when planning your activities or communications.

Week one: Active living with a long term health condition

Week two: Embracing the outdoors

Week three: Movement and mental wellbeing

Week four: Sport and leisure clubs in your area
