“You can’t pour from an empty cup”
Caring for a relative, friend or neighbour can be rewarding, challenging and exhausting all at the same time. Our teams are here to support you all the way. We can offer a wide range of specialist information and advice as well as access to practical help.
One of the most important aspects of what we do is to listen and offer emotional support. We are also keen to help you put yourself first and find ways to help you focus on your health and wellbeing. This is all aimed at preventing a crisis and getting help in place before things become difficult.
There is so much help available for Carers from ourselves and many other agencies we work closely with. We have excellent links across health, social care and the voluntary and community sector locally and regionally.
Our team is here to help Carers recharge and refuel and generally be on your side. So contact us and we will do our very best to help you.
For more information on how we can support you contact us on 0300 005 1213 (Durham) or 0300 030 1215 (Darlington).
