Carers Breaks Appeal resources For over a quarter of a century, Northamptonshire Carers have been providing direct support to Carers and Young Carers from Middleton Cheney to Easton-on-the-Hill. Throughout this time our mission has remained the same and we continue to fight for Carers throughout Northamptonshire. Our services include connecting Carers through groups, cafes, lunch clubs and 1-to-1 support. We also enable Carers to maintain their own health via our gyms, reiki and Carers Assessment services. One of our most valuable ways of supporting Carers is by providing a short break away from caring: time to relax, switch off and be yourself. Although we are helping Carers get much needed breaks, we want to do more and meet ever-increasing need to provide Carers and Young Carers with the breaks they deserve. We also know that something as simple as a break can help prevent breakdown of a caring role which in turn reduces pressure on social care and the NHS. Learn about Elaine’s story here.
