Are you a carer?
Many do not recognise themselves as carers.
They are parents, grandparents, children, partners, friends or neighbours doing what needs to be done to maintain a quality of life for those they are looking after.
Sunderland Carers Centre is there to help you. Whether you are caring for young children, parents, grandparents, extended family members or friends, they adopt a “whole family” approach.
The responsibilities and duties of a carer can arrive at any time, to anyone in any community – you may be looking after your child, spouse, friend, relative or co-worker.
We would urge anyone who thinks they are or may know a carer to contact the Carers Centre directly.
