Online support for unpaid carers in Durham

Durham LP social share

If you look after someone regularly, perhaps a parent, partner, child, sibling, or neighbour or friend, we're here to support you in your caring role.

We work with Durham County Council to provide a range of free online services to support you and compliment the support already on offer from Durham County Carers Support.
