A number of free advice and information sessions for unpaid carers in Stockton have been announced in the run-up to Carers Rights Day.
Sanctuary Supported Living’s Stockton Carers Service has announced its autumn programme, which offers unpaid carers in the area free peer support sessions, group activities and a number of talks about topics like legal issues and community safety.
The activities run every Thursday from 1pm to 3pm at Five Lamps, 32 Dovecot Street, Stockton, TS18 1LN.
The session will offer visitors the chance to learn about their rights as an unpaid carer, as well as receive advice about support available.
Carers Rights Day is held to bring organisations across the UK together to help carers in their local community know their rights and find out how to get the help and support they are entitled to.
All unpaid carers, including those in receipt of Carers Allowance, are welcome to attend any of the service’s events.
