Do you or someone you know care for a dependant relative or friend? Do you find it difficult to get time to go out to shop, meet friends or just have some time for yourself? If yes then maybe the Sitting Service can help by sending a friendly volunteer to sit with the person you care for so you can have some time for yourself.
