The Autumn/Winter 2017 issue of Carewaves is full of articles about what we and other organisation have been doing to support unpaid carers.
You can also find out about changes or planned changes to health and care services that could affect some carers. Changes such as Hertfordshire County Council consulting on plans to change its charging policy for community based adult care services.
As always there are details about our free, upcoming, courses and workshops, forums and other activities.
You can also read about:
- Our Annual Event for Carers and our first residential break for young carers;
- Decisions made by Herts Valleys Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and East and North Herts CCG about future health provision in Hertfordshire;
- Changes to non-emergency patient transport in Hertfordshire; and
- Our plans to mark Carers Rights Day (on Friday 24th November 2017) plus information about various rights.

Keeping in touch
We are changing the way we are communicating with carers. In addition to the website and biannual Carewaves magazine, we would like to keep you up to date via e-bulletins. You may be asked for an email address when we contact you. We are also investigating sending text alerts to remind you if you have booked onto a course or workshop, rather like some dentists and doctor surgeries do. If you would like to be kept up to date in this way please let us know.
