Join our Carers Voices Conference in July
Our annual Carers Voices Conference is taking placing now and throughout July. The focus this year is `Healthy Caring, Healthy You.’
Giving carers the opportunity to have their say, at a time when many carers are even more hidden and isolated, the online conference includes an online market place, a range of keynote speakers, a live Q&A panel and a series of carer workshops covering a variety of topics.
The free conference is open to all unpaid carers in East Sussex, including parent carers and young carers. Head over to our conference page to watch the videos. Take a look at the carer workshops agenda below and register here.
