The sessions are specifically for Carers to come along and meet with Healthwatch and Knowsley Council to discuss some of the issues faced by Carers. At the sessions we will be discussing the Carers Strategy for Knowsley, this will be a great opportunity to share your views and look at how Carers within Knowsley can be supported. Your input will be valued and attendees from the Knowsley Council Commissioning Team will be in attendance to hear your views.

Today in the UK, more than 1 in 10 of us are an unpaid carer, looking after a friend or family member with illness or disability.
70% of unpaid carers already suffer from back pain - the worlds leading cause of human disability.
Suffering severe back pain not only reduces your ability to help the person you are caring for move around, it can also impact your overall ability to look after them (and often yourself, too).
Thank you to everyone who has supported Knowsley Carers Centre and all carers living in the borough and beyond throughout 2016. We would like to wish everyone a very happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year. The office will be open as usual at 9.30 am on Tuesday 3rd January 2017.
In an emergency please call the Knowsley Access Team on 0151 443 2600
