Carers Rights Day 2020 – is next week – 26th November

Traditionally, Pembrokeshire Carers Information & Support Service (PCISS) with support of PCC would organise an event in a local venue for Carers to attend. However, due to COVID restrictions, this unfortunately cannot happen this year. So, a Pembrokeshire Carers Provider Forum working group, facilitated by PAVS, including PCISS, PCC, & Hywel Dda UHB, have organised a timetable of events for unpaid Carers to access on and around Carers Rights Day. These activities are outdoors or online, free and will provide an opportunity for Carers to access information, advice and peer support.

I am really pleased with the variety of activities on offer for unpaid Carers in Pembrokeshire, who have been under an increased amount of pressure this year due to the COVID lockdown. We hope that they enjoy what we have on offer.

Thank you to Pembrokeshire County Council, PCISS, PAVS Community Connectors, Workways+, Alzheimer’s Society, Action for Children’s Young Carers Service, Hywel Dda UHB, and the Connect Pembrokeshire team at PAVS.
