Carers Forum October 2016

The Care for the Carers Autumn Forum will be taking place in Hastings on: Wednesday 19th October 2016 at The Hastings Centre, The Ridge, Hastings TN34 2SA –  A light lunch will be provided.

As an unpaid carer, you are officially invited to attend this free event.

You are welcome to arrive from 9.30am onwards to browse the Market Place and speak to professionals with the official start time of 10.00am

The theme for the forum is ‘Carers Hot Topics’.

At the spring Carers Forum you told us there were some issues that were very important to you.  You wanted the opportunity to explore more of those difficult to talk about subjects and share your views and experiences.  The workshops and marketplace at the autumn Forum will give you many opportunities to do this.  You will also hear from Dr Neil Churchill from NHS England, who will be telling us about the new NHS toolkit that requires a wide range of services to improve how they identify and support carers.

If you live in and around Peacehaven and Heathfield, we will be running a free minibus to help you get to the forum. Please enquire at the time of booking to reserve your place.

Please note if you would like to bring the person you care for or a guest there is a small charge of £5 which can be paid on the day.
