Midland Mencap in partnership with Forward Carers and Town Hall Symphony Hall will launch Carers Week 2017 on Monday 12th June 2017 with our Celebrating Family Carers Event at Symphony hall Birmingham from 10:30am-2:30pm. Probably the biggest, but definitely the friendliest carers’ event in the land during Carers Week!
This FREE event is for all carers across the West Midlands and If you joined us last June, you’ll know that hundreds of families came along and enjoyed the day.
We believe in building ‘Carer Friendly Communities’ that recognise and support the amazing role all family carers play within our communities. Meet fellow carers, find out your rights as a carer and access to local services and take part in our FREE wellbeing on-the-day activities. The Wellbeing Zone has FREE massage, relaxation and carer health MOTs. The Entertainment Zone has live music and relaxed performances, as well as FREE refreshments and in the Information and Advice and Parent Carers Zones you will find over 50 organisations and services waiting to talk to you.
We also welcome professionals, volunteers and anyone else who has an interest in supporting carers and building resilient carer friendly communities.

The Symphony Hall pride themselves in being accessible to all, so whether you need a helping hand from one of our friendly volunteers on the day, sensory support, or facilities for the disabled, let us know and we will do our very best make your day easy and enjoyable.
