Worcestershire Macmillan Citizens Advice
Citizens Advice in Worcestershire is partnered with Macmillan Cancer Support to deliver a countywide specialist advice service for people affected by cancer.
If you are affected by cancer as a patient, family member or carer, medical treatment is probably your number one priority. But you may also have other practical concerns about money, employment, housing or something else large or small.
Worcestershire Macmillan Citizens Advice offers support specially designed to meet the advice needs of those affected by cancer.
Worcestershire Association of Carers is a registered charity that was founded in 1997 providing an independent source of information, advice and support for unpaid adult carers in Worcestershire.
The group represents carers at a local and national level and supports them to have a voice in decisions that affect them.
Action On Hearing
Action on Hearing Loss is the new name for the Royal National Institute for Deaf People.
The charity's aim is to see a world where hearing loss doesn’t limit or label people, where tinnitus is silenced and where people value and look after their hearing.
Berrington Court is an Independent Living Scheme located on the Silverwoods development.
The scheme has 100 apartments and Phase 2 is currently under development with an additional 65 properties.
Our vision for Berrington Court is simple, our residents live a good quality of life, with the emphasis on physical and mental wellbeing.
