Cardiff and Vale Unpaid Carers Assembly 2023

Cardiff and Vale Carers Assembly is a unique event specifically designed by carers, for carers, and with carers

The Cardiff and Vale Unpaid Carers Assembly is a direct response to the voice and views of our region’s Unpaid Carers and is designed to prioritise your attendance.

We have been able to secure funding from Cardiff Third Sector Council (C3SC) to contribute up to £80 for replacement caring support, if you need to arrange this to be able to attend the Assembly. If you would like to apply for this payment, there will be a short form to complete at the Assembly. Please bring along your bank details on the day.
