- 2pm – Tea/Coffee & pastries on arrival
- 2.15pm – What to expect from a Care Act Assessment?
A Care Act Assessment, also called Need Assessment, is an assessment carried out by Islington Social Services to see what support needs you or the person you care for may need. Two of our Age UK colleagues are former social workers and they will be giving you an insight into what you can expect during an assessment and how you get get the most out of the assessment.
- There will be ample opportunity to ask questions, but do try to keep them general! If you have any specific questions, we’re happy to support you with those after the session.
Cuppas with Mobilise
Islington Carers Hub work together with Mobilise. They host five online ‘cuppas’ every week where carers can meet other carers. The sessions are at different times of day, including one in the evening.
Digital Support/Support Getting on Zoom
We’re all on a digital journey! Getting an email address, getting access to the internet, booking GP appointments online, all require an investment of time and an open-ness to discovering new ways of doing things. With this in mind, we’ve created a series of digital guides, specially developed to help people to get the most out of technology.
