Supporting Carers

A carer is someone who looks after a family member, partner or friend in need of help because they are ill, frail of have a disability and the care they provide is unpaid.  The pressures of caring can have a damaging effect on health and wellbeing as carers often put the needs of the person for whom they care above their own needs.  We provide an information point at the surgery which normally runs on the last Tuesday of the month.  The contact number for Carers Northumberland is 01670 320025 or they can be contacted via e-mail  oninfo@carersnorthumberland.org.uk.
