Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust (CNWL) invite you to come in for afternoon tea, to meet staff, to share your story or to help launch the new Carers Information leaflet.

Carers Week will take place from 6 – 12 June this year.

Carers Week is a chance to celebrate the many carers among us who do so much to support and care for others.

Throughout Carers Week, CNWL will host a series of events to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges that carers face and recognise the contribution carers make to families, health and social care services and communities throughout the UK.

CNWL invites you to attend or support the following events:

TUESDAY 7: Share Your Caring Stories:
To give their staff an insight into the realities of being a Carer they are asking Carers to write a short account of ‘A week in the Life of a Carer’ or Caring in BME Communities’ that they can share with staff – please do let Karen Doherty, Head of Patient and Carer Involvement know if you would be interested in writing/recording your thoughts on one of these topics or another topic of your choosing- she is happy to work together with you on it. You could present it to staff yourself if you wish or have it video’d or read out on your behalf, They will offer a prize for any stories shared.
Email Karen: karen.doherty4@nhs.net 

WEDNESDAY 8: Meet CNWL Carer Governors and Carers Council afternoon tea: 12pm – 2pm at the Trust HQ Stephenson House, 75 Hampstead Road, London NW1 2PL
Lots of tea, coffee, sandwiches and cakes (and fruit!) and they are hoping to offer a relaxing chair massage to Carers who take part.

FRIDAY 10: Official Launch of the Carers Information Leaflet
CNWL’s week’s events will culminate with the official launch of their new Carers Information Leaflet, produced by CNWL’s Carers Council.
The leaflet will be launched at 3pm at Trust HQ by a very senior member of CNWL staff (to be announced). Please do come along.
