Working Together for Carers
After the review of the Lancashire Carers’ Forum in
November 2015, and following a meeting in January 2016 attended by Carers and
professionals from Carers Lancashire, Lancashire County Council and the NHS, it
has been decided that the Lancashire Carers’ Forum in its current form will no
longer take place.
Instead, a new group has been formed which will focus on making sure that the commitments made in the new Carers’ Multi-Agency Strategy 2016-18 are implemented. The new group is called 'Working Together for Carers' and its creation recognises that, despite cuts to Lancashire County Council Services, Carers and their rights remain a priority.
Working Together for Carers will meet four times a year at various venues across Lancashire and aims to look strategically at services available for Carers across Lancashire. Watch this space for the first date and venue to be confirmed.
Staff from Carers Lancashire will attend and take a lead role at the Working Together for Carers meetings and the Group are also keen to ensure that Carers voices are also heard in person. If you are interested in attending this meeting and can talk about the needs and rights of Carers on a Lancashire wide level, please call 0345 688 7113 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like to attend the Working Together for Carers meeting but would struggle to get there please let us know as transport may be available.
