CARERS in Wrexham can find out more about the services available to them at an information day this week.

To mark Friday's Carers Rights Day North East Wales Carers Information Services (NEWCIS) is holding information events in Wrexham and Llangollen.

NEWCIS provides support to those who look after relatives or friends who, because of illness, disability, sensory impairment or the effects of age, could not manage without help.

The Wrexham event will be held today (Thursday) between 11am and 7pm at Capel y Groes, Bodhyfryd, while the Llangollen event will be held tomorrow between 11am and 2pm at the Memorial Hall, Market Street, Llangollen.

All those attending will be offered a free Christmas buffet and carers at the Llangollen event will also be offered a free hand or foot massage by a qualified therapist.

AM Karen Sinclair will be attending the Llangollen event at 1.30pm and the Wrexham event at 4pm.

Thanks to funding from the Carers Special Grant, NEWCIS is able to assist with any transport or care costs to enable carers to attend. Carers are welcome to bring a friend or relative.
