Today, Dr Dan Poulter (Health Minister) presented certificates to Wickham Market volunteer respite carers.

These carers are volunteers, who give respite care to people in need, in the community. This is a free service, created by the people of the village of Wickham Market, in Suffolk. The carers are all trained to high standards, and Christies Care has given these volunteers free training in manual handling, so now they know how to help people move, safely.

More volunteers are due to come to Christies Care for their free training in the next few months.
