Carers Northumberland has made some changes in the way they are delivering services to carers in 2017 and now have some new team members.
New Key Support Workers will provide targeted one to one support to the carers in most immediate need, people new to caring, those in crisis or in danger of carer breakdown. These workers can offer support to carers in a more dedicated way to ensure that their individual needs are met.
There is also an increase in staffing in the Information and Advice Service so that now more carers will be able to access information in more places and attend a greater number and variety of events and activities across the County.
CEO, Sharon Spurling said, “If you recognise you are working with a carer who may need general advice or support, or more specific one to one support, please do refer or pass on our contact details. If you would like us to speak to your team about identifying carers and raising your carers’ awareness, we’d be happy to do so.”
