Hello and welcome to our Autumn edition of Carers News.
Wow what a summer!
In June we celebrated Carers week with our first ever Carers Festival at the Open Market (see page 10&11).
The Young Carers have been up to all sorts through the school holidays, catch up with them on pages 12 & 13.
Over the Autumn we will be celebrating Carers Rights Day on November 21st. Also the Reablement Project is celebrating their fifth anniversary – Happy Birthday Reablement (see pages 6&7).
You will also find some new regular features; including ‘You said, we recommended’ feeding back on all of the Carer Expert consultations (page 14&15). ‘Meet the Team’ where in each edition we will introduce you to members from the Carers Hub team, this time we are meeting with Liz and Louisa who support those caring for someone with a life limiting illness or nearing end of life. We have also introduced a wonderful new feature called ‘One Minute With’ where we will chat to a different Carer organisation in and around the city.
We hope you have a fantastic Autumn and we will see you again for the Winter Edition – Out early 2020.
