Council offers carer event in Newton Stewart

Dumfries and Galloway Council is hosting an information event to increase people’s awareness of local groups and organisations that can offer support to individuals or families either working as or using the services of carers.

Topics to be discussed will include:

Are you getting the correct benefits?

Do you want advice on keeping warm and saving energy?

Do you need a handrail fitted?

How can you get your gutters cleaned?

Would you like to learn more about healthy eating?

If you have a problem with a service, how can you find someone to speak up for you?

Participating organisations will be able to answer the questions above and many more.

The event will be at the Riverside Day Centre, Newton Stewart: Tuesday 24 March, 2pm to 5pm.

You are invited along to have a cuppa and get the support and advice that you need.
