This edition is all about giving carers a voice – from Carers Week, to the campaigns to fight for carers’ rights. We have also featured photos from carers (see front page winners of our photography competition) and carer stories.
We know a lot of you deal with challenging behaviours in your caring role and we’ve included some tips to identify triggers and plans to diffuse certain situations. You can also read about our new website and our updated What’s On section, which makes it much easier to find our activities, groups and events.
We’ve also taken on board some of the suggestions you gave us at our forums; a competition, carer tips, asking for your stories, more details about forthcoming events, including evening events, and a reminder that former carers are welcome at many activities. We weren’t able to include all your ideas, but more will be seen in the next edition.
Please email email@example.com if you would like to sign up to the magazine or contribute an article, photograph or useful piece of information.
