Darlington Carers Support
Are you a Carer?
A Carer is someone who, without payment, provides care and support to a partner, disabled child, relative friend or neighbour who could not manage without their help.
If you’re not sure where to turn and which services you need we can give you lots of information and advice on what is out there to help support you and the person you care for. We also offer support with accessing the relevant welfare benefits, taking a break, grants to help fund essential items and transport costs, help with completing forms such as blue badge and Council Tax reductions and we also offer a free counselling service to Carers if you need extra support around your caring role. We have support groups and events that give you the opportunity to meet other Carers and have some time-out and often run training courses and wellbeing days!
Tel: 0300 005 1213/0300 030 1215
There are also Carer Support groups on the first Wednesday of every month from 1.00pm to 2.30pm in King Williams Street Community Centre.
