How we can help
The chances are that at some point in your life, someone will rely on you… that makes you a carer!
Many do not recognise themselves as carers.
They are parents, grandparents, children, partners, friends or neighbours doing what needs to be done to maintain a quality of life for those they are looking after.
Sunderland Carers Centre is here to help you. Whether you are caring for young children, parents, grandparents, extended family members or friends, we adopt a “whole family” approach.
Each member of a family will experience different caring roles and our aim is to identify and support every need.
Many of our calls are from carers requiring benefit advice and guidance as a caring role can impact on the family’s finances. Our Carer Contact Team can help guide you through the Turn2us calculator or simply click on the Turn2us button to complete your own benefit calculation.
