KS2 Bath

Keep Supporting through Knowledge and Skills

A support group for carers of people with mental health difficulties

Minutes of meeting on 12th March 2013

Thanks to everyone who came – it was a really good meeting.

We now have a constitution. Many thanks to D for all his hard work. The constitution has been agreed and signed, and a copy of it will be posted on this site shortly for everyone to read.

We are looking for funding, and B has applied quartet funding. We are waiting for the results of the application.

B is arranging a joint meeting with Paul Hudson from St Mungos Crisis Housing and Basil Wild (AWP funder), to talk about the crisis housing in Bristol, and also what is happening in Bath with the budget cuts. The date is yet to be arranged but it is likely to be during office hours.

B is also meeting with Ros Stower, area manager of the AWP, with hope of joining their carer/service-user forum. B will get back to us with the results.

We are trying to sort out a social event. If you have any ideas, please let us know. Suggestions so far are a quiz night and a ‘Whodunnit” evening.

Publicity for the group – details of “Keep Safe Keep Sane” are going out via post from the B&NES Carers’ Centre.

Thanks again to everyone for attending, and we look forward to the next meeting in April.
