Carers Voice meet virtually or at our Woodlands Centre based in Bath.
Carers' Voice network
People often tell us that they feel unseen and undervalued by professionals and decision-makers when it comes to caring for their loved ones. Carers’ Voice aims to change this.
We want to ensure that people with experience of looking after someone have their voice heard when it comes to decisions that impact them or the person they care for.
Carers’ Voice is a peer group for former and current carers to come together and share their knowledge, experience and to help shape services for future carers.
Members often communicate with local and national organisations, particularly working closely with professional services in the area including Bath and North East Somerset Council, Bath and North East Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and the RUH.
