About Sunderland Carers Centre
The Centre is for ALL carers who look after someone with a long-term illness or disability.
Sunderland Carers Centre offers a confidential information, advice and support service to carers throughout the City of Sunderland (including Houghton-le-Spring, Hetton-le-Hole, Easington Lane and Washington). Our services are confidential, non-judgemental and impartial and we are the "centrepoint" of support for all unpaid carers in Sunderland.
Sunderland Carers Centre is an independent voluntary organisation, registered as a charity, and is a Network Partner of Carers Trust.
The principal funders of Sunderland Carers Centre are Sunderland City Council and the Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).
Our Board of Directors are a group of people who are elected by members of the Carers Centre to oversee the Centre’s work and help control its policy and direction. Members of the Board give their time voluntary and attend regular Board meetings. They delegate work to paid staff, volunteers and sub-committees and establish a development plan for each twelve-month period. Members of the board give their time voluntarily and take active roles beyond attendance at board meetings. The majority are carers or have recently been carers.
