Members of Forbes' Wills, Probate, Tax and Trusts Department attended a Carers' Rights Day at Blackburn with Darwen Carers Centre.
The event, held to coincide with national Carers Rights Day, gave carers the opportunity to obtain advice on any issues they may have.
Jennifer Wilkinson, Solicitor, gave a presentation regarding the changes to the Care Act that came into force in October and LPAs, which was well received by those attending. Following the presentation those attending were given the opportunity to chat to Jennifer and Sarah Petrie over a coffee about any problems they have.
Jennifer commented, "Both Sarah and I enjoyed the event and it was great to support carers in the local community. The event was a great success and thanks to Blackburn with Darwen Carers Centre for organising it."
