Invitation to carers' event in Birmingham on Wed 24 July

Tell us a bit about yourself here.
Thanks Lizzie.

Out of curiosity , anyone from the local food banks drop in to give advice / guidance ?

In many manors , the food banks are now the hub for anyone seeking the same ... even the local CAB have now closed
here in Worksop ( Funding cuts ) , leaving a huge void.

Hi Chris, there wasn't any reps from the local food back. One of the attendees did kindly take the remaining refreshments to give to a local project though. Shame to hear the local CAB has closed.
Thanks Lizzie.

CAB closing ?

No great surprise if CUK read the forum more often ... many of the support services still listed on the main site only
exist on paper ... not in the real world.

Their closure can be offset on many manors by local grass root organisations ... sometimes , just individuals like here in
Worksop ... doing the best they can to fill that void ... completely under the radar of the tradional supporting organisations
... the only exceptions being Trussells / Shelter / Age UK ... all changing their traditional ways of doing things to meet the
challenges on the street.

Something I pointed out to David Grayson during his only session on here so far .., and as amplified by a separate thread :

https://www.carersuk.org/forum/support- ... t=umbrella

As the crisis deepens , so does the need for a different way of thinking / doing things increases.

Next roadshow ?

Be brave and host one in one of the top ten of the deprived areas in the UK ... and an open one at that.
