Bexley Carers Partnership event

It’s National Carers Week from 5 -11 June and an opportunity to say thank you to all of Bexley’s unpaid carers who work so hard and make such a huge difference in our community. 

31 May 2023

To thank the borough’s carers, the Bexley Carers Partnership, which consists of the NHS, the Council and voluntary organisations, is hosting a free event on Friday 9 June at the Holiday Inn, Bexley, DA5 1ND, from 10am–2pm.

If you are looking after someone, then why not come along and talk to other carers?  There will be a gift bag for all carers on arrival, a free buffet lunch and refreshments and free activities such as massage, reiki, exercises, and drop-in art sessions.

Cllr Melvin Seymour, Bexley’s Cabinet Member for Adults’ Services said: “It is all too easy to overlook our hard-working unpaid carers who do one of the toughest jobs in our community.

“This event is our way of thanking them during this important week when we recognise the immense contribution they make to the local people and families they support.”

Stuart Rowbotham, Bexley’s Place Executive Lead, said, “It’s important that we recognise what a vital and difficult role unpaid carers have. An event such as this, where partners come together to show what support is on offer and take time to listen to the needs of carers, is a demonstration of how support and services work better in partnership to address the needs of our people.”

Vikki Wilkinson, Chief Executive of Carers’ Support Bexley, and chair of Bexley Carers Partnership, said, “The Bexley Carers Partnership is working together to better support carers. Its strength is us all coming together: carers, charities, health services and the local authority.”

At the free event you’ll find lots of information on support and advice available to unpaid carers in the borough. You will also be able to get practical tips on coping with stress, looking after your mental health, direct payments and health and nutrition.
