Unpaid carers – someone looking after a relative, friend or neighbour that is elderly, ill or disabled - are invited to an Information and Support event to find out what help is available for them in Harpenden area and how they could get involved in a support group as we are to launch a Carers Support Hub in the area.

The event will take place on Tuesday 18th September 2018 at the Quaker Meeting House, 12 Southdown Road, Harpenden, from 11.15am to 2.15pm.

At the event carers will be able to enjoy a gentle, chair based 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 hub.

Alex Daar, our Projects Officer Caring Communities, explained: “Hubs are run by volunteers for carers with support from us. They give carers the chance to meet up and socialise, 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 Harpenden Hub is the fifteenth hub we are setting up as part of the Caring Communities Project thanks to the Big Lottery Fund grant. The plan is to have 16 hubs in Hertfordshire by 2019.

To book a place at the event on September 18th 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.
