Carers’ Resource gives tailored support and information to unpaid carers and vulnerable people. It also provides information, advice and support to carers, to the people they care for and to professionals who work with them. They also share many carers stories which will help carers.
Do you want to help improve social care services in North Yorkshire? If so, you could volunteer to become a lay visitor. The role involves you talking to and getting the views of people who are using the same service as you or a relative you #care for. Training, support & expenses are provided.

It’s #carersweek and every day this week we’ll be releasing a top tip from Emma Taylor of Dyneley House Surgery, #Skipton, on how to stay healthy and connected. Today’s tip is to keep talking.
Emma says: “Try to socialise and keep in touch with your contacts to avoid becoming isolated. Caring responsibilities can put strains on relationships but coffee with a friend can do wonders for your mental wellbeing.”
As part of deciding how services for carers in Bradford District will be prioritised and funded in the future Bradford Council and the local NHS are conducting a survey that they want carers to complete.
It is very important that as many carers as possible feed back to the council about the services they have used, their needs, and what provision for carers they would like to see. It is of course especially important to Carers’ Resource that carers in Bradford District who have used our services and been satisfied with them let the Council know!
