Bromley’s Carers Forum gives carers the chance to have their say on issues of concern and new and developing services. The Forum acts as a representative group made up of carers across the borough and meets quarterly to discuss issues affecting carers.
Recently, Forum members have been looking at issues surrounding the new Care Act, the new borough transport policy and issues for carers of people with dementia. They are planning to look at Carers Assessments and respite issues over the next couple of meetings however, other issues are always discussed as they become relevant.
Some of the activities in which the Forum takes part are: -
• Posing questions to statutory authorities relating to carer issues and thereby raising the profile of carer issues in the planning of services
• Completing questionnaires and surveys from statutory organisations if changes are proposed
• Giving carer experience and feedback on many issues
• Sharing information members receive from other forums to further improve the carer experience
