Emailing Sunderland Carers' Centre

Following our move to new premises, Sunderland Carers' Centre is currently experiencing difficulties with our computer system, in particular receiving emails.

Until we have got the system up and running correctly again, if you need to contact the Carers' Centre and usually do so by email, please could you phone the Centre instead on (0191) 549 3768.

If you have sent us an email at any time since Monday 16th April and you have not received a reply please contact the Centre to check if we have received it.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Are you eligible for a free NHS health check?

You can't always tell by looking but we're all at risk of heart disease, kidney problems, diabetes or stroke, which is why the NHS is inviting everyone between 40 and 74 to have a free NHS Health Check.  It takes only 20 minutes and can reduce your risk of serious illness.

If you would like to make an appointment for a free health check please phone (0191) 529 7156.
