The theme for Carers Rights Day this year is Looking to the future. Knowsley Carers Centre will be holding an information day on carers rights with lunch provided. To express your interest in attending contact Knowsley Carers Centre on Tel 0151 549 1412.
Delivered by Harvey Howell Solicitors
Harvey Howell Solicitors will be delivering free seminars on the 19th and 26th September 2018 at Knowsley Carers Centre, Bewley Drive, Kirkby. The aim is to provide legal knowledge and education to help carers to better support those they care for. To book a place, please contact Knowsley Carers Centre on 0151 549 1412
Knowsley Carers Centre will shortly begin issuing ID cards for carers. Lots of places offer concessions for carers and some shops even offer discounts. However, it can be a barrier trying to prove that you are a carer, especially if you are not getting any benefits in respect of your caring role.
You will need to arrange an appointment with Judy to attend one of our Centres in person with proof of your ID and have a photograph taken so the card can be issued. The ID cards will be valid for one year and there will be an annual renewal charge of ¬£1. For more information, and to request your ID card, please call Judy on 0151 549 1412.
Monday 11th June 2018 10.30 am-3.30 pm

Wed 24th January 2018 Your invitation to help shape services for the future.
KDC has been talking to individuals and groups and hosting events with the aim of improving adult social care services in Knowsley through public involvement, engagement and coproduction. We want to make sure that people who use services, their families and carers have a chance to influence the way care and support is designed and delivered in the future. You are invited to take part in the first Coproduction Day on Wednesday 24th January at The Caldwell Centre, Tarbock Road, Huyton, L36 OSD. Call Johanne Ross on 0151 480 4090 or email Johanne.email@example.com
The last working day of Knowsley Carers Centre is Friday 22nd December 2017 and we will reopen on Tuesday 2nd January 2018.
If you have any emergencies during this time, please ring the Knowsley Access Team on 443 2600.
The list for the Christmas party is now closed. Carers who have been given a place will soon be contacted to confirm their place, pay the fee and to discuss travel arrangements (if they live outside of Kirkby).
If you are unable to attend please let us know on 0151 549 1412 and the place can be given to another carer.
We will still be operating a reserve list so carers can still request to be added to this, however this is certainly not a guarantee of a place. Thank you.
