Carers are being invited to a series of workshops to play their part in how support services are to be developed.
Bury Council and Bury CCG recently consulted carers and those who support them about the services they have used, their needs, and what provision for carers they would like to see in Bury. This was done using the written format, electronically using the One Community platform or face-to-face focus groups.
A number of feedback workshops is now being held as follows:
- Monday 4 March, 1-3pm - Lancaster Room, Bury Town Hall
- Monday 4 March, 6-8pm - Peel Room, Bury Town Hall
- Wednesday 6 March, 10am–noon - Peel Room, Bury Town Hall
For people who support carers:
- Wednesday 6 March, 1-3pm - Peel Room, Bury Town Hall
Councillor Andrea Simpson, cabinet member for health and wellbeing, said: “Carers freely give their time and energy to support friends or family members. But caring for others should not be to the detriment of the carer’s own health and wellbeing, and carers can receive support in a number of ways – such as from Bury Council, the NHS, and the Voluntary, Community & Faith Alliance.”
If you would like to attend one of the workshops, email firstname.lastname@example.org call 0161 253 7926 confirming your name, organisation (if applicable) and the session you wish to attend.
