Carers Question Time

Our Carers Question Time at the #CarersRightsDay event on Friday was presented by the wonderful Peg Alexander – TV & Radio Presenter.

Peg, a broadcaster and journalist among much else, gave up her time for free so in return we’re telling you about a couple of social media courses that Peg offers: ‘Making Social Media Work For You’ and ‘Making Phone Videos for Social Media’. Both are very useful courses if you’re looking to improve your social media presence.

The courses are at a discount price for voluntary, community and social enterprise, or other not-for-profit organisations.

For full details visit Peg’s website http://www.pegalexander.com/social-media-training.html

Thanks again Peg!

Skipton Office Move

Some big news! On Thursday 2 November we’ll be beginning the move of our Skipton office from Broughton Hall to a mnew location in Skipton town centre. Broughton Hall has been a wonderful home for 14 years but the new offices will be easier for more people to get to, convenient for public transport, and offer more space to provide services to carers.

The new address is Ronaldsway House, 36 Brook St, Skipton, BD23 1PP. We’re keeping the same phone number 01756 700888.

Obviously moving offices is going to be quite complicated and take us a few days to complete, so there will be some disruption. Phone calls will be answered by staff at other offices but the Skipton office will be closed from Wednesday 1 November, reopening at the new location on Tuesday 7 November. Thank you for your patience during this time, and we look forward to welcoming you to our new place!
