The aim of Adults First is to provide an environment of mutual support and education for carers, providing workshops and other support activities, to support them to achieve a better life for their son/daughter or relative. Adults First supports carers to influence the development of service provision and planning in the borough, helping to ensure their voice is heard on local issues. Adults First also produce two newsletters a year and runs occasional conferences. The Forum is run by a steering group of family carers who decide the business and direction of Adults First.
