An invitation to sit on the Carers Partnership Board


Are you a family carer?

You are invited to bring your experience and expertise to the Carers Partnership Board

Join a monthly meeting with other carers, and people from Solihull Council, health and services that have carers’ interests at heart.

• Help decide how the money available for carers support is spent

• Help shape and design services

• Share, challenge and inform the decision makers

• Be the voice of carers

• Influence change and celebrate success

• Eat cake and drink tea

Carers who attend tell us…

“I feel valued and that my opinions as a carer are heard.”

“We can say what is not going well and try to change things so they work better for all carers.”

“I meet other carers and realise I am not alone.”

“I see that officers from health and the Council do listen to carers and are trying to make things better for us.”

Meetings usually last for 2 hours and take place during the day. Interested?

Solihull Carers Centre Join Solihull Dementia Action Alliance

daaThe Solihull Dementia Action Alliance is made up of organisations that operate across the Borough of Solihull and are working towards creating dementia friendly communities to improve the lives of people living with dementia and their carers.

Solihull Carers Centre submitted their action plan and will be working towards delivering those actions which help to deliver on the outcomes outlined in the Dementia Declaration. The declaration was created by people with dementia and their family carers and describes seven outcomes they would like to see in their lives.

You can view the declaration here
