Carers Rights Day 2022

Carers Rights Day is a national event to highlight and campaign for carers’ rights. With the cost of living crisis being one of the main concerns for carers we held an information event focussing on this. 

We had a range of organisations and information points that carers could access for information advice and support. 

Our panel also answered carers’ questions and spoke on how they are supporting carers.

Here to Help this Winter 2022

A big thank you to all that attended and supported us with our event. 

Winter can often be a difficult time for people. This year, with rising fuel costs, we know it could be even harder, so Solihull Council has worked with local voluntary groups to create this information booklet to help you.

Inside you’ll find information to help you keep warm, healthy and safe plus details of financial help and assistance. Wherever possible there are telephone numbers as well as web addresses.
