The Family Carers Reference Group is a group of family carers of adults with learning disabilities who live in Islington. We meet every two months and welcome new members.
- We support each other in facing the many stresses and strains that family carers encounter
- We provide opportunities for senior managers, elected councillors and other professionals to meet family carers, to hear about our experiences and concerns and to answer our questions
- We elect representatives on to key decision-making groups in Islington
- We provide updates about developments in government policy and local initiatives (e.g. changes to welfare benefits or housing issues) that may affect you and your relative or friend.
Come along and have your say on the big issues facing people with learning disabilities and their families in Islington (such as Housing, Health Care Services, Fulfilling Lives/Activities, Personal Budgets, Staff Training, Social Care Management, Education and Employment).
The next meeting will be on Wednesday 22nd September 2021, 11:00 – 13:00.
It will either be held in person at Centre 404, or online via zoom. We will be able to confirm this closer to the time.
