Carers Open Meetings

Carers Rights Day 2018 | Friday 30th, November 2018 (last updated: 04/10/2018)
10AM – 2.30PM at The Vassall Centre, Gill Ave, Fishponds, Bristol, BS16 2QQ

All Bristol and South Gloucestershire carers are warmly invited to our next annual Carers Rights Day event!

This year’s theme is caring for your future. There is a choice of workshops including making wills, mindfulness and art therapy; plus information stalls.

There will also be an opportunity to help shape local community health services. Most community healthcare takes place at home, which is why it is so important to involve carers in this conversation.

You’ll also have the chance to meet staff, carers support officers and carer representatives.

There will be a delicious lunch and one to one massage sessions running throughout the day, all free of charge!
