BAME Carers Voices Workshop

Dear Member
We know from our research that carers from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Communities face greater barriers when it comes to accessing local services and often support is not tailored around their needs.  It is becoming increasingly important that BAME voices are heard by people who run and design services but, as carers often tell us, it can be difficult to know how to get involved and how best to make your voice heard.

Carers UK has secured some limited funding to run a free training workshop specifically for London’s BAME carers to improve both their skills and knowledge to ensure their voices are heard  If you are a Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic carer living in the Capital and are interested in attending this workshop that others have found both positive and empowering, please see the attached leaflet and booking form.

A limited number of bursaries are available for some carers towards transport and respite care costs.

For more information,  please contact Ann Smith: ann.smith@carersuk.org or to book a place contact Mark Murphy: training@carersuk.org 0845 2412537

Please note this course is available for BAME carers only.
