In November we held our first ever Carers Rights Day expo at the Civic Centre in Trowbridge. Below you’ll find the presentations given on the day, which contain useful information for carers.
Some fantastic Wiltshire charities and organisations that support carers were in attendance, including Alzheimer’s Support, Citizen’s Advice Wiltshire and Olive Branch Counselling.
Throughout the day speakers gave talks on topics such as caring for a child with additional needs, navigating the benefits system and building a support network.
