Residents' Week provides an opportunity for local people to get to know what services are available to them.

On Wednesday 16 March services across the city will be showcasing the help and support they can provide.

This includes events such as a special 'coffee and chat' for carers at the Café Zest Restaurant in House of Fraser, at 10.30am, a support event for members of the Armed Forces community at the Civic Centre, at 2.30pm, and a special careers advice drop in session for parents of school leavers at the Connexions Centre, 118 Salop Street, from 2pm to 4.30pm.

Ian Darch, Chief Executive at Wolverhampton Voluntary Sector Council and Chair of the City's Inclusion Board, said: "This is a great opportunity for residents to find out about a range of services that can provide help and support.

"In addition organisations are offering a range of activities from singing sessions to over 50s clubs and drama sessions for young people aged between 8 and 12. I would urge everyone to take a look at what is on offer and pop along."

Councillor John Reynolds, City of Wolverhampton Council Cabinet Member for City Economy, added: "The aim of this day in Residents' Week is to highlight to the people of Wolverhampton the vast array of local services available to them.

"The impressive list of events and drop in sessions on offer caters for residents of all ages and needs."
