Carers in Largs and Millport, and elsewhere in North Ayrshire, will be celebrated at a special event this week to mark Carers Rights Day.

Unity - North Ayrshire Carers Centre - will be hosting the special event on Friday, 30 November, at Saltcoats Town Hall.

The day will offer a mix of advice and information, coupled with some fun and relaxation activities.

Councillor Christina Larsen, North Ayrshire Carers’ Champion, said: “While many carers already know their rights and the help they are entitled to, there are still too many people who are left to cope on their own and aren’t aware of the support that is available to them.

“That’s why this event is so important – there will be loads of valuable information available for carers which could help change their lives for the better.

“If you’re a carer looking for some advice, please come along – you’ll be made very welcome.”

The event will held on Friday, November 30, between 10am and 1pm.
