Thursday 25th November is Carers Rights day. Did you know there may be 100 - 300 residents who are unpaid carers in the City of London, spanning a large age range. Many of whom are unaware they have rights. This year's theme is "Raising awareness of the rights''.
As there are so many great events taking place to mark Carers Rights day, we have rescheduled our monthly ‘Listening to City Carers’ session, it will now be held on Friday 3rd December between 2pm – 3pm. The joining details are:
