Update 21st October 2020 – While our carers group activities are operating online, we are now able to resume some socially distanced 1:1 support sessions in-person. Also, our Carers Hub support line remains open and we invite carers to contact us for details on services they can access – 01273 977 000 email@example.com
During this challenging time, we appreciate that many carers will be worried about the health of their family, themselves and about their ability to continue caring. The local authority has issued a statement around their commitment to supporting carers.
