Shared Lives carers, champions and staff meet Minister Huw Irranca-Davies Shared Lives carers, champions and staff meet Minister Huw Irranca-Davies

Babs Lewis, Wales Development Manager, recaps on a great day launching the State of Shared Lives in Wales Last week.

On Thursday March 22nd, Shared Lives carers from all over Wales and the people they support met up with Huw Irranca-Davies, Minister for Social Care, to launch our latest State of The Nation Wales Report. The Minister gave us a warm welcome, even sacrificing his lunch hour to see us when his meetings over-ran.

He’s a real supporter of Shared Lives and we look forward to working with him again this year. And before returning home Samantha Hall and her mum Llywela also managed to speak to the First Minister, Carwyn Jones, and tell him all about the service.

They couldn’t have picked a better day, as along with the Report we also announced the new 100 Lives Campaign to provide more support to help older people stay independent. We’re hoping in the year to come many more Shared Lives carers and the people they support will get their Assembly Members backing for our campaign.
