Local Support Over Christmas Advent Video Series
Local Organisations and Services – We need YOUR help!
Following on from last year’s video series success we are doing it again and inviting even MORE services to help us to let unpaid carers know about your Christmas opening times and support in place for your service users.
We are asking for organisations to record a quick video update on opening hours over Christmas and how people can get in touch.
Full support will be given to record and Carers of Dundee will promote on your behalf.
Dundee Carers Centre provides information on services available up until Christmas, festive opening hours, and ways carers can access support while the centre is closed.
