Are you an unpaid carer?


09 October 2023

A carer is a person of any age who provides unpaid help and support to a relative, partner, friend or neighbour, of any age, who has an illness or long-term condition and cannot manage without the carers help.

We would like to invite carers to join us at one of our workshops. As a carer, your experiences are vital in helping to shape future services for carers in North Northamptonshire, and we want to hear your views.
