I want to tell you all about yesterday’s amazing PICNIC IN THE PARK event at Victoria Park. it was wonderful to see carers that I have not seen in over a year, carers came with their Mums, with their Nephew’s and a truely happy time was had by all. I want thank carers for sharing their food, that was my favourite part of course. Also a big thank you to Tracey and Luis the Carers Academy volunteers for their help and happiness. We were very lucky with the weather and that helps a lot for outdoor events.
Carers reported that they would like to similar easy, low cost outdoor events in the future, so if you have any ideas that you want to discuss with me then email: firstname.lastname@example.org and we can come with other quick win ideas.

New online booking system for vaccines
Based on feedback from residents and young people, we have now set up an online booking form to make it easier for you to book your local vaccine appointments.

The form is quick and easy to use and is now in place alongside our dedicated helpline, which you can call on 020 7364 3030 to book appointments and ask questions.

Easing out of lockdown will allow us to get back to the people and things we love, but going “back to normal” may also bring worry or concern for many of us.
London is full of amazing people and communities who have pulled together throughout the pandemic. Our city works best when we all look out for each other.
Whilst returning to normal, make sure to take some time to check in with friends, colleagues & loved ones.
For those who may be feeling worried or facing uncertainty, remember, you are not alone. Thrive LDN’s website has a range of resources to help you with your mental health and wellbeing, and some ways to get support if you are finding things hard.
