CARERS DAY: Event in Worthing

A WORTHING-based group is one of 1,000 across the UK taking part in Carers’ Rights Day.

It is on Friday, December 3, and the Worthing and District Carers Support Service is inviting carers along to the St Paul’s Community Centre, in Chapel Road, to take part.

On hand will be staff from the Carers Support Service, the Department of Work and Pensions and the carers champions from Jobcentre Plus, as well as plenty of useful information.

Manager Hari Chhokar said; “We encourage as many carers as possible to come along and find out about your rights.

“Millions of pounds in benefits and services are unclaimed each year because carers are unaware of what is available to them.”
