These sessions evolved from the previous “Coffee and Learn” events, which included a training element, and were more formal in style.
We pride ourselves in being responsive to carer’s needs; carers told us they wanted the opportunity to meet together in an informal setting to network, swap ideas, socialise and develop the identity of a B&NES Carers group. Carers chose the title of the new event, and the first “Caring for Carers Group” was held on 21st June, and will continue to develop according to carers' needs.
This is an opportunity for B&NES carers and staff to have time to meet together. A number of Family Placement Team staff will be available including managers, some social workers and our psychologist.
We are hoping for an informal, social and supportive time. We look forward to seeing you there.
