How can I get involved?

You will be invited to regular CPA (Care Programme Approach) or Care Review meetings, which are a great way that everyone involved in your relative’s care and support can meet. It is at these meetings that people can talk about progress and discharge planning.

Some of our family carers are involved in the recruitment and interview process for employing staff. This ensures that you can have your say about who you think would be able to deliver good support for your relative. Contact us if you would like to get involved.

We also have a Family and Carer Forum, which is made up of families and carers across the UK. It is run independently of Danshell, whose only role is to offer administration support. This forum is a meeting place for family carers to use, where they can seek or exchange information, ask questions, discuss fears and worries and provide support to one another.

The forum produces a Family and Carers newsletter, which helps families share experiences as well as keeping people up to date with benefit information, legislative changes and relevant Danshell developments. The forum are always looking to increase numbers so please get in touch with your regional representative if you are interested in hearing more:

  • Representative for Scotland
  • Representative for North East
  • Representative for Midlands
