Providing confidential support, advice and information to carers of all ages across Hambleton and Richmondshire.
Are you providing unpaid support and care to a partner, family member or friend who has a physical or mental health illness, a disability or learning disability or who has issues relating to substance misuse, or who is elderly?
Anyone who is supporting someone on a regular basis is a carer and a carer can be of any age. We provide support to carers across all ages.
Many carers do not realise that they have a recognised role and simply see themselves as someone doing their best to cope while they look after someone. It is common for a carer to neglect their own health needs, lose touch with friends and feel overwhelmed by their responsibilities. Young carers can struggle at school, find it hard to make and keep friends and are known to be vulnerable to risk-taking behaviours and are more likely to be bullied than other young people. Hambleton & Richmondshire Carers Centre is a local registered charity and Company Limited by Guarantee which was established in 1994.
