A seminar for family carers to discuss the Care Act and the Children & Families Act was held at Mears Shropshire Home Services at Monkmoor, Shrewsbury.

Organised by Shropshire Rural Community Council, the programme hosted guest speakers who explained how these acts would benefit the many people who care for family members, neighbours or friends across the county.

Information and advice was provided by various relevant organisations including Shropshire RCC Carers Support Service, British Red Cross and Carers Trust 4all.
