Carers are invited to attend a series of workshops which aim to build confidence and improve well being.
The sessions give carers a chance to share their experience with other carers while learning from professional experts.
Funded by Telford & Wrekin Council and CCG, sessions are free to carers and help is available with the cost of respite and travel if needed. Light refreshments are included.
To book a place on any of the workshops please call 01743 341995.
