National Engagement Group for Carers’ Engagement Week

During the week beginning 19 October 2020 the Engagement Group will be holding a series of events to amplify the voices of unpaid carers and the professionals that work alongside them.

The National Engagement Group for Carers works alongside the Ministerial Advisory Group for Carers to help inform Welsh Government’s approach to supporting unpaid cares across Wales.

The events will give carers and professionals the opportunity to share how COVID-19 has impacted on them and what steps they think should be taken to make sure that carers receive the recognition they deserve and the support they need.

All sessions will be held on Zoom and early booking is strongly advised as spaces are starting to fill up already:

Monday 19 October 2020 at 6pm – Young carers

Tuesday 20 October 2020 at 2pm – Older carers

Wednesday 21 October 2020 at 10am – Healthcare professionals
