- Carers Hub North (Haxby)

24/03/2022 3:15 pm - 4:30 pm | Oaken Grove Community Centre

Come and see us for a chat at one of our friendly in-person Carer Hubs in the coming months.

The Hubs are a great opportunity to catch up with our staff and other carers, ask any questions and get advice you might need, over some refreshments.

Come along to any of the hubs, no matter where you live in York, and you’re very welcome to bring the person you care for too.

When: The Carers Hub North in Haxby is on the fourth Thursday of each month, from 3.15 to 4.30pm.

To ensure the Hubs are as safe as possible we are using closed venues, rather than drop-in venues, for now. Please do book in advance to attend the Hubs, even if it is just a day or two before. This helps us make sure we don’t exceed maximum numbers.

Contact to book: events@yorkcarerscentre.co.uk

Please see our calendar for the Carers Hub Central (Friargate) and Carers Hub West (Clifton) hub dates.
