ARE YOU A CARER?

Carers Northumberland

 

Together we can offer a wide range of information and support for people who look after a family member, friend, or neighbour who needs their help because they are ill, frail or have a disability.

 

There are an estimated 35,000 carers living in Northumberland.

 

Carers Northumberland is a charity dedicated to improving the lives of carers by responding to the needs of carers, informing carers of their rights and entitlements, supporting carers to access help for the person they care for, reducing the social isolation that so many carers feel.

 

This includes carers of people with mental health problems, and those who are dependent on drugs or alcohol.
