The drop-in event is taking place at the Dudley Council-run Queens Cross Network on Thursday June 15 from 2 to 7pm. Refreshments will be available.

There will be a marketplace where people can find information on supported living options, vision and hearing support, falls prevention, caring for a loved one or friend and self-management programmes for people with long term conditions,

There will also be advice on home adaptations to help people live safely and securely as well as information on dementia services and support for older people to help keep them safe.

People will also be able to take a tour around the community hub at Queens Cross Network and find out about the varied activities on offer. Councillor Natalie Neale, cabinet member for adult social care, said:

"We want to support people living with disabilities through the extensive range of services we offer to help them live a happy, safe and full life. We also see the value of supporting family members and carers too.

"This event is an opportunity for people to get a thorough overview of how we can help and make contact with the right services."

There is no need to confirm attendance in advance. For more information about the event call 01384 813460
