ISSUE 49 FEBRUARY/MARCH 2010
CARERS GET IN ON THE ACTION!
Following the launch of the new Carers Strategy in Wandsworth last year, Carers
are now working alongside senior staff within NHS Wandsworth, Adult Social
Services and the Mental Health Trust. As a result Carers are now able to voice
their views about the issues that matter to them. This is placing Carers at the
heart of discussions and decisions about local services.
Existing opportunities to contribute include:
G Representing Carers views at meetings
G Training Staff
G Designing leaflets and information
G Researching Carers views on services
G Helping plan improvements for future services
G Along with many other opportunities
If you want to help continue this work or find out more about what has been
happening and how you could get involved, contact Daniel Blagdon from

Learning Bus Hits the Road!
The Wandsworth Learning Bus made its first tour of the
borough in the week before Christmas, offering people the
chance to explore the new mobile classroom. Many
residents braved the cold to meet the bus along its route
and were welcomed on board with festive fruit punch, mince
pies and the chance to win a prize draw.
The Learning Bus, which begins work officially this year, will
visit eight different locations across the borough to provide
taster sessions for adult learners. The bus is equipped with a flexible mobile classroom which
will offer courses from basic IT skills and digital photography, to interior design and Indian head
massage. The aim is to encourage more residents to take up adult learning opportunities and
the goal is to have had 2,000 on board and learning by the end of March.
The outreach scheme was awarded funding from the Department for Business Innovation and
Skills following a successful grant application. Wandsworth regeneration spokesman James
Cousins said: “This is a fantastic way to help more residents to access the wide range of
education and training we offer through our lifelong learning service. As well as introducing our
courses, the onboard IT facilities mean people who do not have access to a computer can pick
up valuable skills and learn how to start using the web.”
More residents benefit from adult education in Wandsworth than in any other London borough.
Last year more than 11,000 local people registered with Wandsworth Adult Learning Courses –
almost twice as many as the second highest performing authority.
The bus timetable for 4th January to 2nd April 2010 will be as follows:
9.30 to 11.30am – Portswood Place Car Park, Danebury Avenue, Roehampton SW15 4DD
1.00 to 3.00pm – Tildesley Rd Shopping Parade, Ashburton Estate, Roehampton SW15 3BD
10.30am to 12.30pm – Storm, 253 Battersea Park Road, Battersea SW11 4LF
1.00 to 3.00pm – Battersea Chapel, Baptist Church, 6 Wye Road, Clapham Junction SW11 2SR
9.30 to 11.30am – Shaftesbury Park School, Ashbury Road SW11 5UW
1.00 to 3.00pm – Yvonne Carr Centre, 2 Thessaly Road, Battersea SW8 4HT
9.30 to 11.30am and 1.00 to 3.00pm – Professional Centre, Franciscan Road, Tooting SW17 8HE
