Carers Network wins contract to deliver carers hub service in LBHF: H&F Carers Forum, Thurs 27 July, 1.30pm.

As you may recall, in January the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham Council invited organisations to apply to run their new carers hub service – you may have been involved in the meetings they had about it last year.

This service covers things like providing advice and information, support groups, carers assessments and events.

We are delighted to report that Carers Network has been successful in our bid to run the carers hub service in the borough for the next three years! The contract will start on 1 August 2017.

We are excited that we will continue to work with carers across the borough.

To find out more, we are holding a special edition of the H&F Carers Forum on Thursday 27 July, where we will welcome guest speakers Chidi Okeke, (Interim) Strategic Commissioner, Adult Social Care & Peter Beard, Senior Commissioning Officer Learning Disabilities and Carers, Tri-borough Adults Joint Commissioning.
