Hamiton Carer’s Event

Today, some of our staff attended the Royal Princes Trust Carers event at Hamilton Town Hall. There were guest speakers representing Psychiatry, Lanarkshire Association for Mental health, Social Work and Advocacy. The afternoon consisted of workshops about the challenges and positives of caring for loved ones with practical relaxation techniques, and team building exercises. Our aim at this event was to ensure that people are aware that advocacy is a service which is available to them. Our staff contributed by speaking at the event, raising awareness of case examples where we have worked alongside carers, providing information at stalls and answering question from carers attending.
