Yesterday we had our first Carers Forum of 2021 and thank you to all the carers who attended, there was a lot of you.
We discussed the upcoming Health & Wellbeing weekly activities and carers reported that they supported the Carers Centre via the Academy’s endeavour to enable carers to improve their mental and physical wellbeing. We discussed how this can reduce stress, anxiety, isolation, and fingers crossed help towards being fitter in light of the pandemic.
One of carers gave fantastic feedback about her experience of the Shared reading for Carers and how much she was getting from it, she highly recommended it to her fellow carers.
There are still places available for any of the activities, if you are interested in joining please email firstname.lastname@example.org
One important question was raised about carers getting the vaccine. As I Covid Community Champion I attend last nights meeting, interestingly the meeting was solely about the vaccine rollout in Tower Hamlets.
I was informed that following the priority guidelines, carers in Tower Hamlets who are in receipt of Carer’s Allowance or are the main carer of an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if the carer contracted COVID should be included in Priority 6 alongside people with underlying conditions.
To end my feedback I have been kindly sent a beautiful photograph.
