The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - UK & World Update -

A PRO­GRAMME of free cour­ses to help and sup­port for­mer be­reaved car­ers adapt to their new cir­cum­stances is be­ing launched at a li­brary.

The ses­sions at Hunt­ing­don Li­brary, in Princess Street, Hunt­ing­don, will start from June 25 and will be held over the course of three months.

Their aim is to pro­vide in­for­ma­tion and con- tacts for for­mer fam­ily and un­paid car­ers whose charge has died.

Cam­bridgeshire County Coun­cil Li­brary Ser­vice is run­ning the Op­por­tu­ni­ties Af­ter Car­ing ses­sions in part­ner­ship with other agen­cies. The pro­gramme in­cludes grief and loss sup­port as well as money and gen­eral ben­e­fits ad­vice.

It also gives in­for­ma­tion and sup­port on how to find other vol­un­teer­ing and learn­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties.

En­gAGE project co-or­di­na­tor Mag­gie Brown, said: “This can be a dif­fi­cult time for for­mer car­ers who of­ten sud­denly find them­selves alone and with­out the per­son they cared for.”

Places are limited so book­ing is es­sen­tial. To book a place call Mag­gie brown on 07824 406103.
