Do you care for a relative or friend in Bristol?
If so you are warmly invited to the next

The theme of the March open meeting will be on short breaks for carers (this includes a few hours to a weekend depending on your situation). Speakers will include Carefreebreaks, Bristol Integrated Carers Team, Disabled Children Service and a carer who has some tips on accessing short breaks.

The open meeting is also a great way for carers to stay up to date on all the latest developments in health and social care services. There will also be opportunities for you to talk to fellow carers, staff and to our carer representatives about your views and concerns.
