Johnny Timpson highlights an annual campaign that’s close to his heart and one that should be on the radar of everyone in protection insurance:
‘Why am I passionate about the benefits of financial protection advice and solutions?………Because I’ve experienced care needs up close and the challenges that caring, and being a carer, make on friends and family. Just over a week ago, our industry produced protection claims stats, but remember, behind every stat is a person, a mum, a dad, a child …with many of them requiring ongoing care and support for the remainder of their lives…..’
Carers Week is a UK-wide annual awareness campaign which takes place from Monday 9 to Sunday 15 June 2014. Its aim is to improve the lives of carers and the people they care for.
Hundreds of organisations and individuals join in each year to make it one of the UK’s most successful awareness campaigns.
We are calling on everyone to think about how they can reach out to the thousands of carers in the UK who are missing out on support and services. We have developed some tips and ideas for a wide range of organisations and individuals that we anticipate will be keen to support the Carers Week Quest but if our advice isn’t quite right for you please get in touch to find out how you might be able to get involved.
Be a part of something big:
The greatest ever drive to reach out to carers in the UK
