Time to Care

Posted by Roseann Connolly on Tuesday, March 1, 2016 Under: Carers
Feeling inspired by 'Carers and The Care Act' Conference which I attended yesterday run in partnership by Our Barn and Hounslow Parent Carers Partnership.

Carer's (that is people who care for a relative, friend or neighbour out of the goodness of their heart) are saving Hounslow Council £48.48 million pounds a year.

That's a staggering amount of money.

The conference provided me with a lot of information, and even more I was inspired by the resolve of the attendees and presenters to work together to raise awareness of caring in the Borough.  These are ordinary people - youngsters caring before and after school - pensioners caring for spouses - the permutations, pathos and courage is extraordinary!

About Me

Roseann Connolly I am optimistic that autistic people of all ages, and their carers living in Hounslow will be able to get the services they need to develop and lead satisfying and rewarding lives free from stigma. I don't know how long this will take. We will work with health and social care professionals to develop our mutual understanding and knowledge of what needs to be done. We will not wait passively for services to be delivered to us but will take an active part in the development and where appropriate delivery of those services.
