St Just Carers Forum will be holding their next meeting on Wednesday 9 August from 2-4pm at The Knut, Rear of 1-4 Market Street, St Just, Penzance TR19 7HX.
All informal carers will be made very welcome.
These meetings are run by the Kernow Carers Service and are a free service for anyone who helps look after a family member, friend or neighbour, to give them an opportunity to discuss the issues they face, and have their voices heard in a welcoming and confidential environment, with others facing similar problems.
Many people are unaware of the help they can get because they don’t recognise themselves as carers as 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. This can include making referrals to Carer Support Workers, who work directly with individual carers to give them help and advice about a variety of things, including accessing benefits and services.
