Carer's Strike Action Event for Dementia Action Week!

We have some exciting news! We are organising a Carers Strike Action event for Dementia Action Week 2023. 

Come and join tide in protesting about the lack of support for unpaid dementia carers. You all know that tide was created to support unpaid carers to speak out about the reality of caring for someone who has dementia. We are asking all our members to join us in an act of public solidarity to highlight the strain that too many carers are under. 

We will be holding a protest event during Dementia Action Week on the 16th May 2023. 

The main areas we want to highlight are: 

  • Unpaid carers too often carry the entire weight of caring 
  • Unpaid carers make largely invisible and poorly understood contributions to the whole of society 
  • Unpaid carers are often in a state of mental, emotional and physical challenge  


We are planning to have groups of carers protesting across all four nations with small delegations protesting outside government buildings. We know that many people won't be able to attend because of their caring role and will be backing the event up with media coverage and a social media campaign. So there will be plenty of ways to get involved!
 

If you would like to be part of helping the UK to wake up to the reality of being an unpaid carer, please contact samantha@tidecarers.org.uk
