Lanarkshire Carers Annual General Meeting (AGM)
Lanarkshire Carers Annual General Meeting (AGM) took place on Wednesday 27 September 2023.
Full members in attendance at our AGM were welcomed by Samar Sheikh, Chairperson at Lanarkshire Carers. Following the presentation of our formal agenda items, full members heard about the work of Lanarkshire Carers during the operational year from April 2022 to March 2023. We proudly presented our Annual Report: Carers at the Centre, which highlights our activities and achievements during another extremely busy year. Click on the image below to view our annual report.

We celebrated the development of our full member involvement and heard first-hand from some of our board and full members, who shared their membership journey, experiences and participation at Lanarkshire Carers:
We would like to thank Michelle, David and Ailsa for taking the time to produce and share their video stories and our Board Member, Colin Toal for sharing his personal journey on the day. We hope this encourages other members to get involved and welcome you to get in touch with us to have a conversation about how you can support the work of Lanarkshire Carers.

Group discussions took place during the day; sharing ideas, strengths and skills that help carers to participate as a Full Member. This feedback will be reviewed and any associated activity will be shared with full members at a later date.
Special thanks go to North Lanarkshire Council's Technology Enabled Care team, who displayed the range of technology-enabled care options available to carers in Lanarkshire during our AGM and also to Lanarkshire Community Food and Health Partnership for supplying and distributing food packs to everyone who participated.
