Having your voice heard as a carer can be tough. Empowering carers in our communities to have their voices heard helps to promote direct involvement and influence improvement in the planning and delivery of health and social care services.
Being part of a consultative group with other carers can be an effective, innovative and responsive way to share your experiences thus bringing evidence-based intelligence and best practice together.
We understand and appreciate how valuable your time is, therefore the topics for each Carers Connected group will be promoted on our website in advance of the meeting to allow carers to prioritise what is important to them and what they would like to be involved with.
Carers Connected is a consultative group of carers from across South Lanarkshire and carers representatives from other organisations. The uniqueness of this forum is that carers don’t need to be registered with an organisation they just need to live in South Lanarkshire.
Our Carers Connected meet on the last Tuesday of every month from 10 am to 12 pm
