Carers Rights Day in Hammersmith & Fulham

Friday 25 November 2016 was Carers Rights Day and Carers Network hosted a Health & Information event for Hammersmith & Fulham Carers at White City Community Centre.

At the event 30 carers were able to explore stalls with useful information from a variety of local services including The Hammersmith & Fulham Clinical Commissioning Group, Adult Social Care, The Alcohol Service, Macmillan Cancer Support, the Stroke Association, Open Age and many more.

Carers were also able to have massage therapies, health checks and flu jabs before enjoying a light lunch.

Feedback from the event included:
“Enjoyed the opportunity to network”
“The food was good. Plenty of room”
“Good idea for carers and professionals to get together and gain information”
