Do you want to get your voice heard on the issues that matter to you?
Carers Trust, Carers Support Centre and BANES Carers’ Centre are hosting a campaigning workshop which will aim to help carers campaign on issues that matter to you.
This workshop will cover:
• What carers are entitled to under the Care Act
• How to plan a campaign
• How to influence local decision makers
• How to use traditional and social media
Where it is:
Nearest station: Keynsham
When is it?
Tuesday 31 October. 10am – 2pm
Lunch will be provided and Carers Trust will cover travel expenses for carers.
The workshop will cover the basics of campaigning so you don’t need to have had any previous experience. We want as many carers as possible to be involved so if you want to make a difference to the issues faced by you and other carers – come along and see how you can do that.
Campaigning can be daunting and we know that carers are busy. But by the end of the workshop, you will have the skills to launch your own campaigns and be equipped with the knowledge that you can make a difference no matter how little – or how much time – you’ve got.
This is also a chance to meet other carers and find out what issues you can campaign on together locally. If you want to campaign on issues that are important to you and other carers, then this workshop is for you!
What previous attendees have said
95% of carers who have attended previous workshops said that they felt they had the skills and confidence to launch their own campaigns and felt empowered by their increased knowledge of the Care Act by the end of the workshop.
