We offer one-to-one support, advice and information to anyone caring for someone in County Durham. Our service is confidential, non judgemental and impartial. 

Carer Support Co-ordinators can offer home visits, or arrange to meet you at one of the local resource bases. Telephone or email contact is also available if that suits you better.

The first visit is an opportunity for you to get to know about the services out there for you and the person you care for and for us to find out about your caring role. This will help us to understand and support you now and in the future.

Ongoing support can include:

  • Someone to listen and share how things are going
  • Information and support to access local services including the NHS and County Council
  • Help with gaining carer related benefits
  • Support to fill in forms, gain grants and other funding
  • Support at meetings to ensure your views are heard
  • Advice and support to improve your health and wellbeing
  • Courses and training
  • Opportunities to meet other carers for peer support
  • Counselling
  • Access to funding to take a break
  • Planning for the future and support for emergencies
