On Monday 21 September 2021 we held our virtual AGM with carers, staff, board members and professionals in attendance from across Lanarkshire and beyond. Translators were also present for those carers from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds who required interpretation support. This year’s AGM and Annual Conference highlighted the importance of 'Partnership through the Pandemic’ and supporting carers particularly in relation to the work of our Short Breaks Bureau.
Thank you to everyone who contributes to Lanarkshire Carers and thank you to every carer in Lanarkshire for everything you do, we are proud to support you in any way we can.
Please find below the operational update video presented by Barbara McAuley, Chief Exective Officer, Lanarkshire Carers and a copy of our Annual Report for 2020-2021.
We were also delighted to share a number video addresses from key external speakers regarding the importance of short breaks for carers, including stories from carers themselves to highlight the importance of Short Breaks and the difference they make to their lives:
Kevin Stewart MSP, Minister for Mental Wellbeing and Social Care provided a video address to our AGM Attendees.
Carers shared their stories with us about inspiring breaks they accessed throughout the pandemic.
Ross McGuffie, Chief Officer of Health and Social Care North Lanarkshire provided a video address to our AGM Attendees.
