Carers Northumberland

What does it do?

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 support for the person they care for, reducing the social isolation that so many carers feel and empowering carers to have a voice.

We have a main office base at Pegswood, near Morpeth, with outreach offices in Belford and Hexham, where our Area Development Officers are based.

Our mission is to improve the lives of carers in Northumberland by providing:
  • a range of carer support services tailored to meet identified carer needs across the county, including 1:1 support, groups and social activities
  • a comprehensive, centralised information and signposting service which includes regular newsletters and a dedicated carer telephone information service
  • design and delivery of skills development packages to carers and professional groups
  • creation and development of partnerships and networks between appropriate agencies and companies to ensure delivery of comprehensive, seamless carer support services
  • establishment and maintenance of an independent carer voice to appropriately influence and frame social and health policy throughout the county
  • positive and responsible promotion of carer rights
