The council has published a survey on its website regarding funding to support Herefordshire carers.  We would be most grateful if you could circulate this as widely as possible amongst your unpaid carer contacts and encourage them to complete this online by 15 March 2017.

OR contact Herefordshire Carers Support who may be running a session at Leominster Bupa care Home on 8th March 10-12 with Commissioners. Open for carers to go along and express their views to the consultation who can’t access on line.

Goodbye from Yvie

I want to say thank you to everyone who I have been lucky enough to meet over this past year, the pleasure as truly been mine

It has been the best part of it all, the people I’ve met and the things we have got up too! It’s hard to leave; I am hoping that the meeting centre in Brecon and Your meeting centre will become twinned in some way, because I want to stay in touch with you all.  I’m very SORRY to be saying goodbye, and I’m very sad to be leaving when The Meeting Centre future is STILL unclear
