If you spend time looking after someone who depends on you because of physical or mental illness, disability, frailty or substance misuse, then Carers Northumberland is here to support you.

Carers Northumberland can help you look after your own needs so that you stay fit, healthy and better able to carry on caring. We encourage you to enjoy time for yourself too. We can also offer you:

  • Someone to listen to you when you need to talk.
  • Individual and group support.
  • Locally based staff who can meet with you personally.
  • Events in your area, e.g. relaxation days, learn new skills.
  • Access to money to help you do something away from  caring.
  • Peace of mind from the Carers Emergency Card Scheme.
  • Support when your caring role changes.
  • Information service, offering advice and information on caring issues.
