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.
Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm
We would usually hold our carers support groups face to face within the community but due to COVID 19 this was not safe, so instead we have been holding all our carers support groups via Zoom and teleconference calls. We also contacted many of our most isolated carers via telephone to see how they were. Due to the success and uptake of our Zoom carers groups we have now started to provide carers workshops via Zoom. We also increased the frequency of our carers newsletter to keep all our carers up to date with ever changing guidance.
Details about all our carers groups and workshops can be found on our newsletter and on our Facebook page. Carers can register themselves on our website, via telephone or professional referrals can be made on their behalf to Carers Northumberland

This is done with friendly chats over a cuppa in a warm and welcoming environment.
