PENDLE Citizen's Advice Bureau is launching a take-up campaign for Invalid Care Allowance for carers aged 65 and over.

In October the Governement is changing the regulation for invalid care allowance and extending the opportunity to claim for carers aged 65 or over. These people were in the past unable to claim.

Anyone who wants further details about this can call 01282 447572.

The Bureau has also been staging a series of events to encourage members of the community to become volunteers. Call 01282 602726 if you want more information about volunteeering in Nelson, Colne and Barnoldswick.
