We held our first carers conference this month – Carers Speak Up! on Friday 25th November (Carers Rights Day). The aim of the day was to hear the views of carers on the services available to them. We managed to get lots of feedback and the day ended with an interactive poll to see what was important to you – the carer.
Your views are important to us, and the feedback we got on the day was very positive and incredibly helpful. Here are the results from the interactive polling session.
If you missed the chance to ‘Speak Up’ you can do so on our website via this link.
