'Carers In Bedfordshire' Invite Carers Interested in Discussing Transport Issues


'Carers in Bedfordshire' are working with Central Bedfordshire Council to ensure carers' voices are heard more clearly in the design and delivery of services that affect our lives. The next meeting may be of interest if you are a carer in Central Bedfordshire. The theme is Transport.
 
The first of four meetings in 2017-18 is to be held between 10.30am and 1pm on Wednesday 19th April in the Council Chamber of Central Bedfordshire Council's Priory House office in Shefford, SG17 5TQ. Each meeting will be in a different part of Central Bedfordshire, but carers are welcome to attend all meetings, not just the meeting nearest to them.
 
The theme of the next meeting is Transport.
 
Come and have your say about this key issue, and hear the latest from:

·         Central Bedfordshire Council, about their Public Transport Strategy, and School Transport

·         East London Foundation Trust (ELFT) about the change in locations of some key services and the implications for transport

·         Voluntary transport and community schemes, including Beds Rural Communities Charity's Good Neighbour scheme

The purpose of the meeting is to share a better understanding of what is currently happening, and work together to develop solutions  that will work.

To book a place, please phone 0300 111 1919 or email  carol.solaiman@carersinbeds.org.uk.
 
If you cannot attend but have a question or a point you would like raised, please also send that to me. Your views really matter.

If transport to the venue is a challenge for you, please contact the organisers and they will try to support you to attend the event.
