On Thursday 25th October, from 7.00-8.00pm in our chatroom, our guest will be Beryl Cross, our new Director of Carers Services for Carers Trust.
She would like to talk to you all about your experiences of getting involved in influencing the work of local or national carers organisations or local or national health or social care services.
Part of Beryl’s job is to work with carers and Carers Trust to provide more opportunities for carers to get involved in what we do. She’d really like to hear from you about what you think works and what doesn’t in terms of influencing the work of organisations so they work better with and for carers.
In case you're not able to come to the chat or would like to think about things ahead of the chat here are a few of the things Beryl would like to ask you about:
Are you or have you been involved in a group or forum that’s given you a say in how services are provided? E.g. a local carers group that has meet with health or social care planners and providers?
What do you think Carers Trust should be doing to better support carers in getting their say in the work we do?
Would you like to be involved more in what we do on line for example: blogs, writing conten, running chats?
We're really looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
