Carers Breaks

Carers Breaks
There are an estimated 57,000 unpaid carers in County Durham providing care and support for a relative, partner or friend. Caring can be a very demanding role. Maybe we can help by giving you a break so that you can recharge your batteries and have some ‘me’ time.

The Coalition Government has made funding available to support carers to take breaks from their caring responsibilities.

NHS County Durham and Darlington are again working jointly with Durham County Council to allocate the funding for carer breaks and opportunities. If you, or someone you know would benefit from a carers break visit www.durhamcarers.info for details.
