The Cumbria County Council carers survey went live this month - Cumbrian Carers Urged To Talk About Their Experiences of Support
Many of you may have seen the articles in the press recently saying that we have been out and about visiting local business and training carers champions.
"What is a carers champion?"
Carers Champions are volunteers who promote awareness of unpaid carers and support people to make contact with thier local Carers Support Organisation to ensure they get the right support and information for their current situation.
Carers Support Cumbria held conferences in 2015 and 2017. A main part of the 2017 conference centred around poetry which carers throughout the county had written during a series of workshops with the Wordsworth Trust. A booklet containing the collection of poetry was published.
