Embolden Project – event 1

February 23, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Logo for Oxfordshire Family Support Network

Oxfordshire Family Support Network a small charity run by families for families who have relatives with learning disabilities have been funded by Comic Relief to run the Embolden Project.

The aim of the Embolden Project is to give a strong voice to older family carers and to influence and hold decision makers to account within health and social care services.

The project is aimed at families who care for adults with learning disabilities, whether they are living with you at home or in supported living or residential care. It is also aimed at brothers and sisters or other family relatives who may be involved in supporting your relative with a learning disability and may be sharing the caring with parents. We especially want to reach out to older family carers.

This is the first of two events covering issues that many family carers have raised in our discussions.

This event will focus on health and learning disabilities and will cover issues such as Transforming Care, Emergency Care, Planned Care, Learning Disabilities and Dementia and the benefits of supported living and health.

There will be key speakers from Oxfordshire Health at the event as well as a number of relevant stands.

The event is FREE, but booking is essential.
