Bristol Carers Open Meeting – September 20th

Do you care for a relative or friend in Bristol? If so, you are warmly invited to the next Bristol Carers Open meeting at the Vassall Centre.

Organised by the Carers Support Centre, these free events are the best place for carers to meet others in similar situations, hear about changes to services and support in Bristol and ask questions directly to health and social care service providers.

Programme for Wednesday, September 20th

Come and join us at our next open meeting when we will be focusing on mental health and end of life care.

If you are caring for someone with mental ill health, Bristol Mind will let you know what support they can provide for you and the person you care for.  They will also be talking generally about ways to look after your emotional health now and in the future.

The local Clinical Commissioning Group would like to hear your thoughts and experiences around end of life care to help inform their end of life care strategy and work plans. We hope to hold a workshop later on in the year on direct payments for carers and there will be some time to put your ideas forward for what you would like to be covered.
