About carers News New County Council carers contracts commence In April we were pleased to regain Carers support contracts from Northamptonshire County Council, including the delivery of statutory Carers Assessments under the Care Act. For carers this is essentially 'business as usual' in terms of services provided however we will be working closer with our partners Alzheimer's Society, Carers Trust East Midlands and Nene Valley Community Action. Working closer together, both behind the scenes and on joint projects will ensure an efficient set of services that we hope will help improve the lives of the 70,000 adult carers in the county. Please explore our website for details of these services and we are planning on announcing new ones soon. A summary of services can also be found in the latest Caring for Carers brochure. Some services require a Carers Assessment which is your legal right and the best way in finding the right service for your individual needs.
