Events, website to support black and minority ethnic carers and families
Next week The Children’s Society’s Include Programme will hold a series of events across the country to launch their new Engage Toolkit, and to support black and minority ethnic (BME) carers and their families. You are invited to attend these free events.
The Engage Toolkit is an online hub, drawing together understanding, policy and best practice from all involved in supporting young carers from different backgrounds, including Gypsy and Traveller communities. The online toolkit will be launched as part of three free half-day events from 28-30 September in Manchester, Birmingham and London (registration information is below).
Helen Leadbitter, Deputy Programme Manager at the Include Project said: 'These events offer an opportunity to explore what’s going on, how we can do better and what support organisations like The Children’s Society, Carers UK and The Afiya Trust can offer'.
Bringing together practitioners, professionals and experts
The events and website seek to mix national policy with local reality, while bringing together practitioners, professionals and experts from across the country.
Bill Badham from Young Minds will host the events and chair the concluding panel discussion. He said: 'This is a real chance for us to work closely with other organisations and meet people on the ground who are working to support BME young carers and those around them.'
