We recognise that it can be difficult for many carers to attend events like this, without the person they care for being with them.  Free home care support is available from Crossroads Barnsley Ltd.  It is important to us for carers to relax at each session knowing that the person they care for is being supported at home. If you need home support, please mention this when booking a place.
