Local carers’ services

Carers Northumberland is an independent local charity which exists to support anyone caring for a partner, relative or friend who needs help because of any illness or disability. This includes:

  • a one-stop information service – on issues affecting carers and signposting to other services
  • individual support including emotional support
  • the opportunity to meet other carers locally
  • help to access short breaks from caring
  • support when your caring role changes or ends
  • a carers emergency card scheme in partnership with  British Red Cross
  • a unified carer voice – to ensure that carers have an impact on decision-making and can influence local policy, planning procedures and outcomes.
