The hidden world of those who care… do we care enough about our carers?

10/10/2023 11:30 - 12:30

In this masterclass we dive into the deeper and often hidden world of the every day lives experiences of what it means to be a carer.

Delegates will have the opportunity to gain greater understanding and insight through hearing first hand about the lived experience of those who care, the impact, emotional challenge turmoil, guilt and responsibility this brings and the dilemmas involved in being labelled a carer.

Society and services can and need to do more and opportunities are explored to how we better identify and support our carers and how at an individual and strategic level we can make a meaningful difference to the lives of our carers.

Delegates who attend will

  • Gain insights into the lived experience and challenges of being a carer
  • At an individual and strategic level consider opportunities and commitments to make a meaningful difference to promoting and responding to the needs of carers
