Please come and join us at the Carers Strategy Launch Event.
When and where is the launch?
The Strategy Launch is on Wednesday 11th of January 2017, 10.30-12.00 at Sheffield Town Hall Reception Room B. Refreshments will be provided.
What is this event?
This is an event to both celebrate and officially launch the Young Carer Parent and Adult Carer Strategy 2016-2020 (the Strategy). The Strategy is citywide and was created by a range of agencies and partners including carers themselves, who are experts by experience.
What is the Strategy for?
Sheffield has approximately 60,000 carers. The Strategy is a plan that sets out our vision, which is that Sheffield is 'A city where carers are valued and have the right support to continue to care for as long as they want to'. It is an important document for the city.
Who is speaking at the launch event?
Speakers at the event include:
• Councillor Kate McDonald
• Councillor Jackie Drayton
• Director of Adult Social Care Phil Holmes
Come and listen to them speak about how the Strategy can change things for carers.
We would like a good balance of people to be represented at this event. Therefore we would be grateful if you could please book an appropriate ticket type from the 2 available:
• Unpaid carers
• Professionals / staff
We hope to see you there.
