On 07 February 2018, the MS-UK Helpline will be hosting an information session at Josephs Court between 2.00pm – 4.00pm.

Many friends or family members may over time take on some aspects of a caring role. We will be hosting an information session for unpaid and family carers to share what local support is available.

  • Carer support groups
  • Emotional support
  • Breaks from caring and respite care
  • Carers emergency plans
  • Training and education for carers

We will have guest speakers from Essex Carers Support and Action for Family Carers to talk about their services and support in the community.

There will be time for questions and answers and handouts will be given to help you know who to turn to for extra support.

To book a place please speak to a member of the Josephs Court team or call the MS-UK Helpline on 0800 783 0518.

(Limited spaces available)
