How you can help us Fundraising Friends of Northamptonshire Carers Donate Here at Northamptonshire Carers we are grateful of all the support we receive. There are 70'000 carers in the county and we see this as 70'000 reasons for us to care. We have launched our Friends of Northamptonshire Carers membership which by donating a small regular amount, you could allow us to reach many more hidden carers and provide services such as our choir, young carer activities and support groups. For over 25 years, Northamptonshire Carers have supported carers of all ages in the county. We work tirelessly to put carers on the agenda of the County Council and NHS as well as deliver services to around 10'000 carers ourselves.
