Unpaid carers of family and friends are invited to an early Christmas party to celebrate Carers’ Rights Day this Friday.

Carer champions from GP practices across Stevenage are organising the party at the Healthy Hub in Stevenage Arts and Leisure Centre on Lytton Way.

From 1pm until 3pm there will be music, refreshments and the chance to mix with other people caring for someone who is elderly, ill or disabled, as well as the opportunity to speak to people from Carers in Hertfordshire, Herts County Council and GP practices.

Wendy Darnell, a lead carer champion from a GP practice in Stevenage, said: “The theme of this year’s Carers’ Rights Day is ‘Make Connection, Get Support’ and this event will give carers the chance to relax, meet other carers, have a chat and get some advice if they feel they need it.”

Email wendy.darnell@nhs.net to book a place at the event.
