Support for former carers at special library courses
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.
