BIG Carers’ Tea Break

Blurb 10_Layout 1Final final - mediumSummer 2016 will see mental health carers in each of the 22 counties come together for a BIG Carers’ Tea Break.

We’re taking time out to meet up and enjoy afternoon tea, have a chat and provide mutual support to fellow carers. We’ll also have the opportunity to sample some wellbeing and pamper activities, get tips at a carers’
information marketplace, and receive some advice and support on carer’s assessments.

These events will be at the core of our wider campaign which will:-

  • Make our collective voice heard so that carers have their say at a local and national level on how mental health services are planned and delivered
  • Empower individual carers to play a full part in planning the care and treatment of the person they care for
  • Inform carers across Wales by providing them with high-quality, up-to-date information on benefits, treatments and local services
  • Ensure we get excellent carer’s assessments under the new Social Services and Wellbeing Act by delivering key advice and support to carers.

The carer-led campaign is supported by Welsh mental health charity Hafal in partnership with Bipolar UK, Diverse Cymru, Carers Wales and Crossroads Mid & West Wales.
