Carers Northumberland have launched their online carers’ forum, a place for carers to share news, views and seek peer support.
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 35,500 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.
Now their new online carers’ forum is live and can help you feel you’re not alone!
If you need an answer to a question?
…or have a great carers tip?
…or hear a bit of news you want to share?
…or have an idea that will benefit others?
Then the forum is the place for you! You can find the forum at www.carersnorthumberland
