Free drop-in sessions have been organised to provide help and advice to adults with ongoing care needs.

Adult social care staff from disability services and the carers support team have set up the sessions, which will run at venues across the county between now and Christmas.

The events provide free and confidential information and advice to adults living with a long-term illness or disability, older people struggling with an age-related condition and anyone providing unpaid support to adult family members or friends who could not manage without this help.

Drop in information sessions take place at the following venues:

* Ely Library – 10am to 1pm on October 16, November 20 and December 18.

You may also want to watch:

* March Library – 10am to 1pm on October 8, November 12 and December 10.

* Wisbech Library – 1pm to 4pm on October 7, November 3 and December 2.
