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

Carers Open Meetings are a great way for carers to chat, stay up to date on all the latest developments in health and social care services and submit feedback to staff and carer representatives.

Hear more about the Bristol City Council’s new Better Lives at Home project. The project proposes to increase supported accommodation within the community as an alternative to residential care for adults in order to improve independence and wellbeing. This is a new project, and Bristol City Council are interested in hearing carers’ views.

We’ll also be updating carers on the Bristol Carers Strategy for 2020 onwards, learn some self-massage techniques (optional session) and finish the day with a free buffet lunch supplied by Glen’s Kitchen Jamaican Food (sandwich options also available).
