The latest issue of Carewaves (issue 1 of 2019) is available now and is full of articles about what we and other organisations have been doing to support unpaid carers.
You can read about funding we have secured from the National Lottery Community Fund to continue and develop our Carer Support Hubs and volunteer run Mentoring Service.
As always there are details about our free courses, workshops and Forums. There is also information about our plans for Carers Week 2019 (10th – 16th June).
You can also read about:
• Our Home Care and Advocacy Services – what they involve and how we support unpaid carers;
• Updates about our Carers’ Passport Discount Card service including new offers;
• Changes to dementia services in Hertfordshire; and
• Our work with young carers including a review of our 2019 Young Carers’ Conference. You can also find out about a contract Hertfordshire County Council has awarded us that will enable us to build on the support we provide to young carers and their families.
