Carers Northumberland

What does it do?

Do you look after someone because of illness, disability or frailty?

You may look after a husband, wife, partner, child, parent, another relative or a neighbour or friend. You probably don’t stop to think about yourself while you're so busy every day.

You are not alone. There are an estimated 36,000 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 and empowering carers to have a voice.
