Charity to set up new Harpenden support group for carers

Charity Carers in Hertfordshire is to launch a new support group for unpaid carers in Harpenden and is inviting people to an Information Event so they can learn more.

The event takes place on Tuesday 18th September 2018 at the Quaker Meeting House in Southdown Road, Harpenden, from 11.15am to 2.15pm.

Unpaid carers, who look after someone unpaid, due to age, illness, disability or substance misuse, can attend and will be able to enjoy a relaxation and yoga session, discuss what support they would find useful from a hub, and learn more about local services and support available for them.

A Carers Support Hub is a group for carers that meets regularly and enables them to socialise and share their views and experiences and hear from guest speakers on relevant issues such as benefits advice.

For more information or to book a place at the event please call 01992 58 69 69 email or
