Good morning,

Please see below for a few opportunities for carers which might be of interest:

 

Energy webinar

Through our carer helpline we know that the cost of energy is something of real concern for many carers across Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Peterborough. Caring Together have therefore linked up with National Energy Action (NEA) who are the national fuel poverty charity in England. NEA have offered to run a webinar specifically for carers aged 18+ (whether they care for an adult or a child) on Thursday 6th October from 10-11:30am on Zoom. There is more information in the attached flyer. People can book via https://carersandenergy.eventbrite.co.uk/ – As part of NEA’s funding, they are required to share with their funders the area attendees are from, and so people will need to provide their address when they sign up. This will be securely stored by NEA just for the purpose of their reporting and will not be used to contact anyone.

 

Respite opportunities for adult siblings

SIBS are delighted to announce a new project to provide a series of respite opportunities for adult siblings who are carers for their brother or sister who is autistic. This research project will be evaluated so that they can assess what respite opportunities work best for this group of siblings. There will be a wellbeing retreat, a self-care project and a discovery course on offer. For more information, visit https://www.sibs.org.uk/support-for-adult-siblings/adult-sibling-respite-project/

Good morning,

Caring Together, Centre 33 and Making Space are organising a virtual carers conference aimed at both carers and people who might come into contact with carers on the eve of Carers Rights Day 2022 – Wednesday 23 November 10.00am-5.00pm – There will be standalone sessions throughout the day which people will be able to attend.

 

Aimed at carers and professionals who might support them (e.g. health and social care, education, employers, community organisations), all of the sessions will be in line with the aim of Carers Rights Day:

  • Ensuring carers and professionals are aware of the rights carers and young carers have.
  • Letting carers and professionals know what help and support is available across the county.
  • Raising awareness of the needs of carers of all ages (including young carers and parent carers).

 

More details about topics and booking details will follow in the coming weeks.

 

We are also wanting carers and professionals who might come into contact with carers to help us shape the conference – We are asking for people to vote on what topics they think are the most important at Cambridgeshire virtual carers conference – 23 November 2022 Survey (surveymonkey.co.uk) – this link also gives carers the opportunity to say if they might be interested in helping with any of the planning/delivery of the conference.

 

We would be really grateful if you could share both the flyer and the poll with any carers or colleagues.

 

Please do get in touch if you have any questions.
