We’re delighted to invite all carers and professionals working with carers to our annual Carers Conference taking place on Thursday, 22 November 2018, 9.30am – 3.30pm at Dewars Centre, Glover St, Perth PH2 0TH.
The event is organised by PKAVS Carers Hub in partnership with Perth & Kinross Council and Health and Social Care Partnership and aims to celebrate unpaid carers and recognise the vital contribution they make. It is an event with talks and presentations relevant to carers, where issues and challenges they face are put forward and discussed.
This year the focus of the conference will be around having a choice, Personalisation and Self-Directed Support. There will be an opportunity to meet people, network and hear carers speak about their experiences. We have a range of workshops, from mediation and laughter yoga to engaging and informative ones about dealing with chronic pain or making local connections.
