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

Northamptonshire Carers aim to offer a comprehensive support service to Carers within our contracted geographical areas and in collaboration or close partnership with organisations that complement the service we deliver. We recognise the vital contribution Carers make to society and we will work to empower Carers in improving their health, wellbeing and quality of life, alongside raising awareness with all stakeholders with the aim to create Carer Friendly Communities. We recognise the diversity of our communities and are committed to supporting all Carers. The organisation is Carer-led and our developments will be a response to Carers future needs.

Who are carers?

Anyone, including children and adults, who looks after a family member, partner or friend who needs help because of their illness, frailty, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction and cannot cope without their support. The care they give is unpaid



Self referral & assessment

We offer a wide range of ways to contact us and access support. For some people online is best so we offer online options to refer yourself to us whilst completing a self assessment which can be followed up with a more detailed assessment if required.



Professional referrals

As a professional, making a referral to us is very easy.
