The centre hopes to encourage more people from different backgrounds and walks of life to go along and receive support.

A worker at the centre said: “We are hoping the new group will be more of a dropin session for carers and will help care for people by offering advice and peer support from speakers and other attendees.”

The new drop-in groups are planned to start April 12 and are open to anyone who cares for someone with a sensory condition or is a carer themselves with a condition.

Sessions will run from 12pm to 2pm with a themed talk covering a key well-
being topic for carers, such as managing stress or getting the right financial assistance.

A lunch will also be on offer which gives carers a chance to chat over any points raised or bring up any new questions.

Please note attendees must live in the Falkirk Council Area.
