Camden Carers’ Voice (CCV) is the forum for all carers and former carers living in Camden, or caring for someone who does. It meets five times a year to campaign and lobby for carers’ rights. It has been running for over 8 years with an increasingly strong voice.
Camden Carers’ Voice is carer-led, drawing on everyone’s skills, talents and abilities. It is run by a Steering Group which represents the interests of carers. Meetings give the opportunity to:
Meet and talk with other carers
Meet Council officers and service providers to share experiences around what is offered and to know about and inform change
Find out more about what is available
Campaign for change and better provision for carers and those for whom they care Meetings focus on current issues affecting carers such as:
Changes in services in health care and local care strategy
Key legal information around Wills and Trusts
Benefits for carers and those they care for
Carers from CCV were asked to participate in focus groups and consultations including housing for the elderly, day centres, financial contributions, vision for Camden 2025 and Careline.
