Those who provide informal care to others deserve a good quality of life

We aim to offer comprehensive support services to Carers living in Northamptonshire. We recognise their contribution to society and will endeavour to empower carers in improving their quality of life. Our organisation is Carer-Led and our developments will be a response to Carer’s needs.

Who are carers?

The term 'Carer' can often be confusing. We use it in terms of someone who provides support for a relative or friend who has a disability, long-term illness or other additional needs. Sometimes the term 'Carer' can get mixed up for those who work for care agencies and care homes.
