Carers often report that it is hard to know who to ask for support or what support is available.  Visit the Caring in the City Information Fair to learn about services, meet staff, ask questions or participate in one of the numerous workshops.

To reserve a place at a workshop click here or you can register on the day.  Please be aware the spaces are limited so we recommend you book early to avoid disappointment.
