Organise a Roadshow throughout Oxfordshire. Visiting 2 market towns a day and raising the profile of carers and building carer friendly communities throughout the county. Hold information stands in local supermarkets to identify hidden carers and further raise the profile of Carers Oxfordshire.

To raise awareness of support available to carers within their local community.

To hold an awareness event in our store and a "walk in our shoes" display for colleagues to share stories of what life is like being a carer and working.

We pledge to engage our carers at the start of their caring journey. We will encourage them to become part of the Hospital's carers' group to encourage participation, support and assistance.

Build more inclusive environments for all the family and carers.

Promote the role of the family unpaid carer in Gloucestershire.

We pledge to continue to raise awareness in the community to help build a Carer Friendly Community.

Outreach to involve more Carers/Service Users/Clinicians in working in Partnership with the MH Trust to build better pathways and services. We wear the shoes - they must listen to us. Strong connections with the Herefordshire CCG and the RCP.

We pledge to reach out to unpaid carers across LB Redbridge through a range of community events, to raise public awareness of unpaid carers and help break down barriers. We will organise and host: outreach information stalls across different parts of Redbridge, carers lunch, carers information day with local service providers, carer's strawberry tea, a variety of carers health & wellbeing activities.

We will encourage our local communities to think about what it means to be a carer, the issues they face and the importance and value of the services that support them to continue in their caring role. We will do this by holding a fundraising event, collection days and promotion via our website and social media.
