At the event nearly 40 carers were able to explore stalls with useful information from a variety of local services including: Westminster Adult Social Care, Healthwatch Central West London, Turn2Us, The Department for Work and Pensions, Trading Standards and more.

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

Feedback from the event included:
Many thanks to all the stallholders for giving up their time and providing ample information for carers.
I feel very supported which is great.”
