Kernow Carers Service will be holding their next meeting of the Penzance Carers Forum on Wednesday 24th May from 2pm – 4pm.

Taking place at The Annexe at Hayle Day Centre (Commercial Road, Hayle, TR27 4DE), the meetings give carers the opportunity to discuss the services they receive and raise any concerns or issues they have or need advice about.

There are many people in the community who are unaware of the help they can get and who also may not recognise themselves as carers because they look after a loved one or friend.  Staff from Kernow Carers Service will be at the meetings, and will be able to give help and advice to carers, including making referrals to Carer Support Workers (CSWs) who work directly with individual carers to help them with any issues they have, including signposting to benefits and services.

All Carers are welcome and expenses will be considered to enable them to attend.

The Kernow Carers Service recognises the important contribution and commitment of carers and offers them support through a number of Carers’ Forums throughout the county.

For further information, contact Chris Watkins, Forum Administrator on chris.watkins@cornwallrcc.org.uk or 01872 243531.
