Carers Conversation 2022

Wednesday 8th June from 10 am to 12.15 pm at Angus Carers Centre, 8 Grant Road, Arbroath, DD11 1JN

The time has come to hold our annual event bringing together carers in Angus, professionals and our supporters during the Unpaid Carers Week.

As we are emerging from the pandemic, we need to re-evaluate the way we have been supporting our carers.

This year’s event will focus on revitalising our engagement by discussing ways to break down the barriers to carer’s involvement and the support offered through Self-directed Support.

The event will see Gail Smith, Chief Officer of Angus Health and Social Care Partnership, discussing the National Care Service and Maciej Alexander, Chief Executive Officer of Angus Carers Centre, introducing the event and discussing its impact on the lives of our carers.
