This event is organised by Carers Together, in partnership with Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council. It aims to bring together carers and organisations in order to help carers find out how to get the support they are entitled to, whether this is financial or practical support.
There will be a series of presentations and table discussions during the course of the day.
Councillor David Walsh, cabinet member for adults at Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council said:
“Caring can bring all kinds of challenges, so we want to make it as easy as possible for carers to have access to the information and support that is on offer.
“Carers help make a significant contribution to our society and we will continue to look at ways to improve their lives to show how much we value their dedication and commitment.”
Mayor of Redcar and Cleveland, Cllr Brenda Forster will be attending the event.
Cllr Forster said: “I am looking forward to attending on Friday and to help raise awareness of the needs of carers with decision makers, professionals and the public.”
The event begins at 12noon and finishes at 2pm, at the 25K Youth Community Centre in Redcar.
