A carer is anyone who cares, unpaid, for a friend or family member who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction cannot cope without their support.
Anyone can become a carer; carers come from all walks of life, all cultures and can be of any age. Many feel they are doing what anyone else would in the same situation; looking after their mother, son, or best friend and just getting on with it.
Organisations are invited to attend an awareness and networking session to find out about the Better Together in the Home project, which is focussing on;
SUPPORT FOR CARERS
- Hear from the services available in South Ribble to support the needs of carers

When: 25th February 2015 Time: 9.30am – 12.00pm
