New sup­port for Mal­laig car­ers

The Oban Times - - News -

A NEW sup­port group for car­ers is start­ing Mal­laig.

The Con­nect­ing Car­ers group will have its first meet­ing on Tues­day April 25 in the Ast­ley Hall, Ari­saig, from 11am.

There are more than 3,000 un­paid car­ers in High­land, some as young as five, who look af­ter rel­a­tives, friends or neigh­bours who couldn’t man­age with­out them.

All un­paid car­ers are in­vited to go along and meet up with other car­ers in the area to chat over a cup of tea and cake and share their ex­pe­ri­ences while hav­ing a well- de­served break from their re­spon­si­bil­i­ties.

For more in­for­ma­tion email car­ers@ con­nect­ing­car­ers. org.uk or tele­phone Mary Hemsworth on 01463 723561.
