I hope your week is a good one so far and that all is well with your loved ones.
As a hate crime champion for Tower Hamlets and a panel member for the Hate Incidence Panel, I wanted highlight that incidences of hate are not acceptable and that Tower Hamlets has an incredible record of supporting victims, convicting perpetrators of hate crime, and working in partnership with organisations to reduce incidences.
I am highlighting this in light of the awful racism directed towards the three English football players but I it reminds me that some carers and the people they care for have experienced hate directed at them.
The Carers Centre is ‘A No Place for Hate’ service provider and we work hard to protect our carers. So if you experience any form of the following then please get in touch with us, so we can help you report it to the right people.
Hate crime is any criminal offence where anyone believes the victim has been targeted because of their:
- race or ethnic identity
- gender or gender identity
- sexual orientation
- immigration status or nationality
- or any other actual or perceived difference.
Feedback from the Carers Forum 13th July 2021
Thank you to Shohel Ahmed form the Council who presented on the new upcoming Adult Social Care Strategy. The Council would like carers to join a working group to help design the new strategy.
An example of some suggestions of importance, which you can decide if it is or not.
If you want to become a member of the working group, then please email firstname.lastname@example.org as I am collating carers names and will be supporting carers with this group.
Don’t forget to join if this is the group for you….
The Carers centre has a longstanding working partnership with the marvellous Create. They have been facilitating workshops for us for many years and we want carers to vote for the next activity taking place in October and November.
So come forward with your suggestions and email email@example.com

The recording from our last talk on 16th June 11am titled Standing Tall Is now available here Standing tall – Ageing Well Series – Berrill Stadium (open.ac.uk) In this talk we explored further age-related postural alignment changes affecting postural stability and balance, and ways to compensate for ‘gravity of ageing’. (PowerPoint attached for convenience)
The next talk will focus on Things we don’t talk about while ageing and Dr Andreas Vossler will explore topics around intimacy and relationships. This talk will also cover assumptions about sex and ageing, sexual health in older age, importance of intimacy and positive sexuality in later life. We will share the PowerPoint and links to join closer to the date.
