Carers' Rights Day 2009

Carers in Pembrokeshire are invited to Carers' Rights Day 2009 at Haverfordwest Rugby Club on Friday 4th December from 10am to 3pm.

When giving up work to care, a carer's first thought is not about their pension, but about managing care and making ends meet.

Without the right advice, carers could be missing out on:
  • vital contributions to their state pension which could affect long term finances
  • claiming entitlements to extra financial support
Carers are urged to come along and find out more information on how they can maximise their income or pension.

Organisations which provide information, advice and services to carers will be at the day to offer advice and support.

"We would also like to hear your views at the Carers' Forum," said Councillor Sian James, Cabinet Member for the Voluntary Sector, Health and Well-being.

For more details and to book a place on the day please contact Nicole van Schie, Carers Development Worker on 01437 771196 or email nicole.vanschie@pavs.org.uk
