Event to identify carers in the area

An event is being held in Eastwood to identify ‘hidden’ carers in the area.

The event will be held at Church Street Medical Centre next Tuesday, June 11, and is part of National Carers Week.

There will be useful information packs for carers, help and advice.

In March 2013, a carers roadshow ran across Broxtowe visiting supermarkets and town squares. More than 80 hidden carers were identified and it led to a large increase in the number of carer’s assessments from Nottinghamshire County Council.

Anyone unable to attend, should text the word ‘care’ and your name to 66777.
