Carers Northumberland have taken the decision to cancel all our support groups and events until further notice. This includes our regular monthly peer support groups and the Money Matters information sessions which are scheduled throughout March and early April. We are also unable to offer any one-to-one appointments or meetings either at our Ashington office or in the community until further notice. Our Information Line 01670 320025 will be open as normal Monday – Friday for carers who need information, advice and support and you can also contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Although we have not had any know cases of the COVID-19 reported in the local area, we have taken this precaution to help protect the many vulnerable people and their carers that we may come into contact with. The safety of all our service users, their families and friends and our staff and volunteer team are paramount, and this is why we have taken this decision. We will continue to update our access information as often as possible as the situation is continually changing. If you, or a family member think you may have contracted the Coronavirus COVID-19 please seek immediate medical advice from https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19
Carers UK have issued guidance specifically for carers that you might find useful https://www.carersuk.org/help-and-advice/health/looking-after-your-health/coronavirus-covid-19
Thank you for your understanding.
