Thank you to those who supported the Ringwood Carers Group through the Waitrose Green Token scheme in recent months. A total of £388 was raised, every penny of which will be used for the carers.

Ringwood Carers Group


Ringwood Carers was started in conjunction with Churches Together.

They aim to support carers of people living in the Ringwood area;    

· with physical, mental or sensory difficulties or illness, or incapacity through old age

· to provide a focus for carers across all groups                                                        

· to promote the needs of carers                                                                              

· to identify need and work with agencies to develop appropriate services                

· to offer information regarding carers and support for carers 

 

They offer a friendly environment, where you can relax, talk about your problems if you wish, or about anything else for a change. You can come with your friend or relative. You can stay together, or each sit apart with someone else.
