A community information day is taking place in a Kirkcaldy shopping centre this week as part of Carers Week.

The event is being hosted by the Mercat Shopping Centre and Nourish Support Centre on Thursday, June 8, but a whole host of charities and organisations are taking part.

It’s just one of a number of activities being hosted in the Kingdom to help promote the support that’s available to unpaid carers.
