C&I celebrates Carers Week

Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust (C&I) engaged with carers during Carers Week to show the wide range of support that exists for them.

The aim of the UK-wide annual awareness campaign week, which had events running between 9 - 15 June, was to improve the lives of carers, to celebrate the work they do in the local community and to give them a chance to flag up any concerns they have.

Amit Popat, who is the trust's Engagement, Involvement & Equality Lead, attended events on the 9 and 11 June.

He said, "We engaged with carers on some of those days and asked them about for example, our core values, and how these relate to the work which they do.
"We also talked to stakeholders about care issues.
"Ultimately it led to forming stronger partnerships with local umbrella carer organisations."

Mr Popat said the week helped them better understand the wide ranging concerns of carers to help us improve the support they need.

They recieved feedback from approximately 35 people who flagged up issues including the impact of cultural values on their work, clarity and consent in terms of what information we can give the carer, and suggestions for improvement which included the want for more exercise groups for service users.
