Carers Rights Day is celebrated in Enfield
Published Thursday, 02 December 2010
Carers Rights Day is being hosted by Enfield Carers Centre (ECC), a new charitable organisation whose aims are the support of voluntary carers of all ages in Enfield.
Friday 3rd December 2010 - Tomorrow
9.30am till 4.00pm
Enfield Carers Centre, Britannia House, 137-142 Baker Street, Enfield, EN1
ECC is working in partnership with, and supported by Enfield Council, and is based in newly refurbished premises in Britannia House.
Carers Rights Day is an important opportunity to recognise and celebrate the vital work that carers do for those they look after, and for all those involved in supporting carers. It is a chance to hear from carers themselves, and find out how they can be better supported to carry on caring.
Over 1,000 carers have been invited to the day, which will also see talks on personalisation, informal workshops and other events and activities.
The day runs from 9.30am till 4.00pm, so if you are a carer, or know someone who is, why not turn up and find out more?
Cllr Don McGowan, Cabinet Member for Older People and Adult Social Services said "There are 24,313 carers in Enfield and we are privileged to have this newly refurbished Carers Centre for them.
"Carers Rights Day is a special day, set aside to mark the rights of carers, whose needs are often overlooked by society.
"We are asking everyone who is a carer in the borough, or who wants to find out more to come along to the Centre, between 9.30am and 4.00pm to get involved and find out more."
To confirm your attendance or if you require assistance to attend or an interpreter or signer on the day please phone 020 8367 6395 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
