Charity shows how much it cares
ASHFORD Carers’ Support organised a reception to raise the profile of its work and bring it to the attention of local businesses and influential individuals across the area.
It was also an opportunity to show off the charity’s new offices in South Ashford with its carers centre.
On display was key information about the organisation including how Carers’ Support helps carers and details about projects such as its Tele-befriending scheme.
Visitors also had the chance to look at the new Carers Centre facility with its office and training rooms, where carers of all ages can participate in workshops, advice and information sessions to help them with their role and responsibilities.
There is even space to offer carers counselling and alternative therapies, and an activity area where young carers can relax or enjoy social activities.
The charity is hoping to secure greater financial support from the community to help develop the centre. It is also looking for new trustees and volunteers to join its befriending service. � For full information about Carers’ Support phone 01233 663393.
