A local charity has been making sure carers across Northumberland take a break from their caring responsibilities.
Carers Northumberland is offering carers the opportunity to apply for The Carer Support Fund, which is available to adults caring for someone over 18. The amount awarded depends on your caring circumstances, but will be between £25 and £150. You can apply to the fund once a year, and to apply you must be registered with Carers Northumberland.
There is a similar fund for carers who are aged 18 and under, also available once a year.
If you would like to apply for either of the funds, either ring the Information Line on 0844 800 7354 or 01670 320025, email email@example.com
