Events, Support Groups & Drop-ins

Carers Network’s inaugural Carers Week Carers’ Festival will be held at Paddington Recreation Ground from 12:30pm-3:30pm on Friday 14 June!

Here, carers will be the centre of attention, sharing their skills and talents with fellow carers attending.

We’ll have crafters, painters, musicians, dancers, bakers and more.

There will also be a BAKE OFF at the festival, so carers who are a whizz in kitchen can bring down a show-stopper for the gingham alter!

Carers will also be able to enjoy a game of bowls, tennis, table tennis or a go on a smoothie bike if they would like to enjoy some light exercise!

Launch of Carers Forum in Westminster

Come to the Westminster Carers Forum and help to inform, influence and make a difference.

We’d encourage as many carers to come along and feel involved.

The first general Forum will be on Friday 24 May from 2:30pm-4:30pm at Beethoven Centre, Third Avenue, W10 4JL.

At the meeting we’ll be asking you to let us know what you would like from future forums.

Sylvia Nissim from Kensington & Chelsea Social Council will be attending to demonstrate the new carer online training that is free and open to all carers.
If you’d like to register for the forum please call 020 8960 3033 or email events@carers-network.org.uk
