Carer Forum Meetings
Many people help look after a loved one, neighbour or friend, often without looking upon themselves as a carer. The Kernow Carers Service recognises the important contribution and commitment of carers and offers them support through a number of Carers’ Forums throughout the county.
The meetings give carers an opportunity to discuss the services they receive and raise any concerns or issues they have or need advice about in regards their caring role. All Carers will receive a warm welcome at the meetings and be able to meet others who are in a similar situation.
There are many people in our community who are unaware of the help they can get and who also may not recognise themselves as carers because they look after a relative or friend. Staff from Kernow Carers Service will be at the meetings, and will be able to give help and advice to carers, including making referrals to Carer Support Workers (CSWs) who work directly with individual carers to help them with any issues they have, including signposting to benefits and services.
Where issues can’t be resolved at the meeting or by a CSW, we attend various other Groups including the Carers Partnership Board and are able to raise issues on behalf of carers.
Please see the attached schedule on the right, for dates and locations of the Carer Forum Meetings taking place in 2018.
