POhWER attended the 'Keeping Carers Connected' event organised by Support for Carers Leicestershire and VASL (Voluntary Action South Leicestershire) on the 4th June in Hinckley.

The aim of this event was to enable carers the opportunity to meet with their Local Area Coordinators and connect with local support services.

Attendees also enjoyed a complimentary cream tea and ‘Laughter Yoga’. Around 50 people attended the event and there was around 18 stallholders, all local to Hinckley and the surrounding areas including Healthwatch Leicester City & Leicestershire, LAMP, Age UK, Alzheimer’s Society and Sellers Funeral Directors.

Overall it was a fantastic event connecting carers to local services with an opportunity to find out about all the support available.
