Calling All Carers in Bedfordshire

Are you a Carer in Central Bedfordshire? Then come along to the latest Carers Forums in Priory House, Chicksands on 25 January or Leighton Buzzard on 31 January. These aim to bring local carers together to share experiences and talk to a range of professionals.

A key aim for the forums will be around how carers can access information and services which respond to their particular needs, giving them greater choice, control and independence.

Carers Forums are for ANYONE who cares for a family member or friend living in Central Bedfordshire who is ill, frail or disabled. The regular forums give an opportunity for carers to have their say on important issues, to help develop services for carers, and to monitor the difference being made to carers through the work of the council and its partners.

25 January 2013, 12.30 - 3.30 pm, Priory House, Monks Walk, Chicksands, Shefford, Beds. SG17 5TQ

31 January 2013, 6.00 - 9.00 pm, Leighton Buzzard Day Centre, Duncombe Drive, Leighton Buzzard, Beds. LU7 1SD

You can book your place at either of these forums by calling 0300 300 8036 or by emailing carers@centralbedfordshire.gov.uk.
