Carer Engagement Event – Connecting Carers (Creating opportunities for Carers to meet)
Mon 26 April, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
This has undoubtedly been a tough year, where we have learnt to communicate and socialise differently. However not everyone is able or willing to join a ‘virtual’ group/event. VOCAL are aware that meeting with others who share similar experiences can provide a supportive environment. VOCAL would therefore like to create four groups specifically for carers to come together – virtually and/or face-to-face. We would like to hear carers experiences of attending different groups. We want you to have your say, to actively help develop the type of group that cares across Edinburgh would attend.
Duration: 1 week
Who is this online session for?
Carers who would be interested in joining a group with other carers.
This event is open to carers residing in or caring for a person in Edinburgh only.
Outcomes of this online session
Together we will share experiences of attending groups specifically for carers; find out what carers would like from attending a group; and discuss the logistics of where, when, how often, etc. and we would like carers from different areas across Edinburgh to join!
As a thank you for your time and participation VOCAL will provide a grazing box which will be delivered directly to your door to enjoy during, or after the session. The graze boxes will be vegetarian only and include oat cakes and crackers, mature cheddar and brie, baby tomatoes, grapes and dried fruit, pickled veggies, hummus and chutney. By signing up to this event you give us permission to send your address details to the catering company providing these boxes.
We would be delighted if you could join us to share your valuable experiences, and to help develop four groups a cross the city where carers can meet on a regular basis.
