East of England Carers Event

Working Together to Care in the East of England

9th December 2021
10:15 - 16:00
Virtual Event – Microsoft Teams
Entry Fees

Improving our support to carers is a key priority across the East, not only because we want to ensure the region is responding to what matters to carers, the people who are being cared for and their families, but also because it is recognised that carers provide vital care in our communities and should always be well supported and valued by the sector. This event is an opportunity for all of us to come together to share our experience and to discuss ways in which we can improve. Please come and join us.

Purpose of the day:

  • To celebrate the contribution of carers across the East
  • To learn from things that have gone well and not so well
  • To improve our wellbeing

Keynote speakers include:

  • Dame Philippa Russell, Carers UK
  • Matt Potts, Camerados Movement
  • People with lived experience of caring, Kate Sibthorp, National Co-production Advisory Group and Katie Clarke, Bringing Us Together
