Harrow Mencap is developing an innovative peer advocacy and a digital social media project with family Carers as expert partners. The project is for ALL Carers and not restricted to learning disabilities. We invite Carers and previous Carers to get involved in this enterprise.

The main aims of the project are to enable Carers to be more involved in local services and have a voice on issues that are important to them and the people they look after. Carer interested in Peer Advocacy will be provided training, at the end of which they will feel more self-confident, develop a better understanding of Carers’ rights and the formal structures of support (Social and Health services as well as voluntary services); and be able to advocate for other Carers.

The digital social media forum will offer a place where Carers can share issues and information with people who can understand and support them. They will be able to seek advice and support from their peers.

We invite Carers and ex-Carers to join us on the day.
