Carers Rights Day Events

Carers Rights Day Slider New2jpgCarers Network welcomed 64 carers from across Hammersmith and Fulham and Westminster to our twin Carers Rights Day events on 28 November. ‘Know your rights’ was the theme of this year’s national day and carers had chance to talk to experts at stalls ranging from DWP to local community support projects. A series of short talks gave carers the lowdown on avoiding fraud and scams, support with managing budgeting and debt, advice on benefits entitlement and where to get local information. Carers also enjoyed meeting other carers and taster sessions of massage and reflexology.

Carers told us in their own words:

Very helpful and important

Very nice and sociable

Everyone was friendly, especially the Carers Network team

The event was very informative

Some carers wanted these events to happen more often, we also heard requests to hold events in different places. We try to vary locations and will choose different venues next year to make it easier for other carers to attend. Thank you all for attending and for your helpful feedback!
