We wanted to say thank you to all those that attended our carers rights day event on Friday 30 November.
We had 96 people attending in total with professionals, carers and young carers. The day was a huge success with six different workshops running in the morning as well as speeches from the chair of the network and a representative from Manchester Local Care Organisation and the premier of our new carers training video. We also showcased some of the carers videos launched in carers week back in June.
The Manchester Young Carers group took over for the afternoon and ran some thought-provoking workshops about young carers transitioning. They also launched their new music video and we heard speeches from the chair and vice chair of the group.
The theme for this years carers rights day was caring for your future and we hope that we have managed to provide carers and professionals with more information about how you can find the right support to do this.
As well as the event, we ran a very successful campaign on social media called #carersrealities following the realities and wishes of carers across Manchester.
Thanks to everyone who was involved and we look forward to the next event…
