Free Event: Progressing Respite Matters

Continuing with the theme of Carers Week, we would like to make you aware of a free event happening next month….

Credu, and The All Wales Forum of Parents and Carers of People with Learning Disabilities, are holding an event that will explore innovative approaches to respite – a matter that is so important to carers.

Self care is something we all need to achieve a healthy balance in life, such as taking a holiday, but when you are a carer this is easier said than done. Respite placements, and arrangements, can cause anxiety to carers for a number of reasons. If you are a carer, or know someone who is, we recommend attending this event.

Care to Co-operate has supported people and organisations to work co-operatively, to design and run services, for over three years. Do you have an idea for a care and support co-operative?  If so, Care to Co-operate would love to speak to you! You can get in touch by e-mail, call 0300 111 5050, visit or tweet us at @ThomasWalesCoop
