On Saturday 9th March Soar Chapel in Penygraig played host to the Rhondda Cynon Taff Carers Convention.

 

The event saw a number of adult and young carers meet members from Age Cymru, Young Carers RCT, The Older Women’s Convection and Welsh Government Assembly Members as well as Baroness Anita Gale from Blaenrhondda.

 

One of our students Abbie Eveleigh- Williams attended the event  this is what she thought of the day  ” The convention was really good I got to meet a number of Assembly  Members.  The aim of the day was to gain an insight into how carer led their lives. The  Assembly Member wanted to see from our point of view  how to identify  important points that will be contained in the 2015 manifesto.”
