Coronavirus – COVID-19

At the moment there are many concerns over the coronavirus identified as COVID 19 worldwide.  Carers Northumberland is monitoring all coverage and adhering to the advice given by Public Health England and following government guidelines as appropriate.  At present there are no restrictions on our services and the guidelines for protecting individuals and reporting potential cases are being followed. 

Carers Northumberland groups and events are going ahead as planned, although we must be prepared that this could change very quickly should further restrictions be announced.  Any carers who would usually attend a group or is planning to attend an event but feels it would be unwise to do so can still receive telephone support from the Information and Advice Line on 01670 320025.  If there are any changes to the availability of our services we will make our best efforts to communicate these changes as soon as possible via the website, social media and phone messages.
