We are a group of local carers who have all had experience of caring for people who have a wide range of needs. We have all taken part in a course to help us deliver carer awareness training to health and social care staff throughout Knowsley. All of us want to influence the way health and social care staff engage with carers and the way in which services are delivered.
Health and Social Care staff have told us that they have a better understanding of what it means to be a carer when they hear it directly from us. We tell people about both the positive and negative side of caring. Have a look at the Carers Stories tab where you can read about some of our caring experiences.
If you would like to get involved with Carers Vision please contact Jan Box who co-ordinates our group on 0151 549 1412.
