Carers value support from other carers and want strong local services to help them so we are to launch a Carer Support Hub in Berkhamsted.

Unpaid carers – someone looking after a relative, friend or neighbour that would not be able to manage without their help - are invited to an Information and Support event to find out what help is available for them in the Berkhamsted area and how they could get involved in a hub.

The event will take place on Thursday 9th November 2017 at All Saints’ Church, Shrublands Road, Berkhamsted, from 10.30am to 1.30pm.

At the event carers will be able to enjoy a gentle yoga and relaxation session led by a Yoga Teacher. There will also be a chance to discuss what support they would find useful from a group.

Alex Daar, our Projects Officer Caring, explained: “Hubs are groups for carers run by trained volunteers with support from Carers in Hertfordshire. They give carers the chance to meet other up, share views and find out what help is available locally. Hubs meet regularly and provide carers with an opportunity to keep updated on issues and services affecting them.”

The Berkhamsted Hub is the thirteenth hub we are setting up as part of the Caring Communities Project thanks to a Big Lottery Fund grant. The plan is to have 16 hubs in Hertfordshire by 2019.

To book a place at the event please email or call 01992 58 69 69. Please also get in touch if you are a carer and cannot make it to the event but are interested in learning more about the support available for you or if you want to get involved in the hub.
