Carers Plus Yorkshire are launching Veteran Breakfast, Bap and Banter sessions as part of their new veteran service.
The initial session is taking place at Next Steps Community Café in Norton on Saturday 11th September at 11am. Serving members, carers, and military family members are all welcome. Veterans even get their first hot cuppa for FREE!
As the number one ‘go to’ carers organisation across the coast and vale, Carers Plus Yorkshire (formerly Scarborough & Ryedale Carers Resource) has been providing support to carers for over 25 years. The charity has recently expanded the team to include a new Carer Engagement Advisor exclusively for the military community. Lisa Spratling spent 9 years in the Women’s Royal Naval Service as a Navy Photographer and is very much looking forward to offering a friendly face, alongside free and confidential advice to carers of veterans or veteran carers.
“As a veteran myself I feel incredibly proud to be supporting all ranks, squadrons and regiments of the military community. We all know someone who doesn’t see themselves as a carer, but who goes above and beyond in their duties whilst looking after someone else. If you know someone who has a military link and might benefit from a spot of caring support, then why not give us a call and we can have a friendly chat."
