CAUSE starts work in June 2013 on our Carers Manifesto - get involved as our lobbying journey begins
June 13, 2013
There are many issues which we would like to highlight as mental health carers in light of the roll-out of Transforming Your Care. We have now begun the process of drafting a Carers' Manifesto which we plan to launch in September at Stormont.
That manifesto will attempt to distill the concerns and issues which matter to all of us caring for families, partners and friends. We want to highlight the unique circumstances and challenges of caring for a loved one who has experienced serious mental illness and explain clearly to politicians and decision makers the changes that we want to see happen.
We want CAUSE members to directly influence the path we take in our political lobbying and shape up our manifesto messages. We have key dates for lively evening workshops on propsoed ideas and content of the manifesto. Click on our Events section for more details about these workshops:
Derry/Londonderry: Tuesday, 18th June at 7 pm in the Derry City Hotel
Newry: Wednesday, 20th June at 7 pm in the Canal Court Hotel
Belfast: Thursday, 27th June at 7 pm - NOTE postponed with a new date to be rescheduled for late July/early August.
