Wales Carers Summit 2023
Please note: This event is for unpaid carers only.
This year's Summit will be held online from the week commencing the 30th of January 2023.
The Summit will identify what positive solutions and policy changes could be made by statutory authorities, carers support organisations and communities to make life better for carers. We ask carers to consider how services should and could respond to their needs now and in the future.
We will be holding focused discussions on a variety of topics throughout three weeks to capture your views, feedback and suggested ways forward.
Carers Wales will collate key points raised to present to a final plenary session at 10am on Thursday 16th February, where there will be an expert panel who will answer questions presented.
Each discussion session will last for 1.5 hours to 2 hours. There will be an introductory speaker before the discussion is opened up to all attendees. You are able to pick and choose which sessions you would like to attend
All sessions are being offered bi-lingually in English and Welsh and will be simulcast. Please select the language you would like to participate in when you book the sessions you would like to attend.
