Feedback from Manchester Carers Network
To whom it may concern.
On Tuesday 6th February, LMCP helped Manchester Carers Network with the carers consultation element of the Carers Strategy review. More than 40 people from the South Asian community (the big majority of whom were carers) attended the event which ran from around 11am to midday.
The consultation was greatly helped by several LMCP volunteers who interpreted not only the large group introductions but also table by table as we collected individual carers experiences and their stories about what keeps them going. The volunteers appeared highly competent and were able to engage the individual carers using their language, ask supplementary questions to find out more and maintain a relaxed and informal atmosphere. Carers willingly shared with those of us collecting their experiences and stories.
Overall, it was a valuable process, well-run, which enabled us to gather a range of views from South Asian carers.

Feedback from a Social Work student
“I wanted to say thank you to the whole team at LMCP for the support you have all provided me throughout my journey to becoming a social worker. You, Yusuf and everyone at LMCP provided me with excellent learning opportunities whilst I was on my placement and when I worked as a community development on two different occasions whilst doing my MA. You were all supportive and I am deeply grateful for this experience. Everyone at LMCP does amazing work with the community to ensure service users needs are met appropriately to enable them to live more independently in the community.”
