CARERS ACTION NEWS

CA 1During Carers Week Carers Action held an information stand at the Health and Wellbeing Information Day at The Beethoven Centre. The event was attended by carers and also by a number of commissioners and councillor Rachel Robathan. Carers Action’s stand was visited by Mary Dalton, Head of Complex Commissioning.

The People First team came to our steering group to find out what carers think of this useful online information and advice portal provided by the council’s Adult Social Care department.

Through a series of exercises plenty of constructive feedback was gathered which will serve to make the website more accessible and easier for carers to use. The session was thoroughly enjoyed by all and carers universally agreed that they would use the website frequently, especially for health and wellbeing advice, signposting events in the area. Take a look yourself at: www.peoplefirstinfo.org.uk

Carers Action members attended the Tri-borough Carers Partnership Board where carers heard an update on Care Act implementation and support for carers across the local Clinical Commissioning Groups.  Importantly, if carers have any issues with Council Tax, Parking/Disabled Badges, Leisure (working age carers) they can contact Carers Network or Carers Action who can escalate the concern to Adult Social Care Commissioning Team if necessary.

The next Partnership Board is on 1 September, 10 – 12pm, Horton Street, W8 7NX.

Carers Action meets again on 14 October, 10 – 2pm, Beethoven Centre, Third Avenue, W10 5XL.  Senior commissioner Chidi Okeke will be in attendance.
