If you’re a local person dealing with disabilities or are caring for a someone with a disability, you could be given a selection of free advice at a special day in February.
The “Here to help” day will take place at the Allendale Centre in Wimborne between 10am and 4pm, on Tuesday 18 February.
Offering information and guidance, the event will allow people with a disability, and their families and carers to access advice on a range of issues including help with benefit form filling, advice on disability benefits.
An opportunity to take part in a free will writing clinic will also be taking place on the day.
The team of experienced advisors have extensive knowledge to help at a time that can be stressful.
Advice Team service manager Elaine Ewing said: “Trying to find out what help is available and how to access that help can be overwhelming, especially when living with a disability or caring for someone with a disability. This event will allow people to ask those questions in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We are hoping people will leave the day with the confidence and knowledge to apply for the help they are entitled to.”
