It is so important we acknowledge carers and this event will help provide useful information regarding services which are available to support them. We work extensively with the Family Information Service and their team of Parent Champion volunteers, all of whom are carers to young children with special needs”.

Lucia Daniels, from the Wandsworth Family Information Service said, “We will be on hand between 11-4pm We welcome Southside’s support as well as that of the many retailers who have donated prizes for this special day.  Whether looking after a dependent adult, young person or child with special needs or disabilities, we think carers deserve recognition for all that they do for loved ones.”
