Last week (9 – 15 June 2014) we celebrated Carers Week organising a range of events, at different venues across the Borough, to support both family Carers and professionals who work in the Brent Health and Social Services sectors.
Our aims for Carers Week Quest were to:
- Reach out to 200 new carers who are missing out on advice and information, support and services
- Encourage and help individuals and organisations to come together to improve how carers in Brent are supported
- Support individuals and organisations to improve how they look after carers
- Provide a focus and impetus for activities throughout Brent including fundraising.
We would like to thank our Carers Week Quest Partners for their help and commitment: Addaction, Age UK Brent, Brent CAB, Brent Council (our main sponsor), Brent Mencap, Brent Mind, Elders Voice, Healthwatch Brent and Omega Radio. We look forward to continuing this vital work with you throughout the year.
