Carers Network wins contract to deliver carers hub service in Westminster; Council meetings on Weds 9 August

As you may recall, in January Westminster City 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.

For carers to find out more about the new carers hub, the council are holding 2 special meetings on Wednesday 9th August 2017.

The afternoon meeting will be on Weds 9th August, from 2pm-4pm at Derry Hall, Derry House, Penfold Street, NW8 8HJ. MAP

The evening meeting will be on Weds 9th August, from 6pm – 8pm at Derry Hall, Derry House, Penfold Street, NW8 8HJ. MAP

At these meetings Chidi Okeke, (Interim) Strategic Commissioner, Adult Social Care & Peter Beard, Senior Commissioning Officer Learning Disabilities and Carers, Tri-borough Adults Joint Commissioning will present on the new services.

Both meetings will be the same, so please just come along to whichever of the two is most convenient.

There is no need to register for these meetings.

We look forward to hopefully see you at one of them.
