Unpaid carers in Bridgend County Borough have the chance to help shape and influence local support services through a new carer forum.

The forum will be held at Bridgend Life Centre on Thursday 21 September 2023 between 11am and 1pm. Individuals will also have the opportunity to join via Zoom. Refreshments will be provided.

This is an opportunity for carers to have their voices heard and help local services understand what support carers need.

The forum is run by the Bridgend Carers Wellbeing team, which is part of the charity TuVida, a service offering practical and emotional support to unpaid carers in the local area. No qualifications or specific skills are needed to attend.

For more information about the event, please email bridgend@tuvida.org or phone 01656 360268. Further details about the forum are also available on the council’s website.
