A care home team is joining forces with Age UK and Essex Carer Support to offer a helping hand to carers.

Colne View care home in Dame Mary Walk, Halstead, will hold a free Caring for Carers event today at 2pm until 4pm.

Over afternoon tea, visitors to the care home will be able to gather practical information and expert advice on caring for a loved one in their own home.
