Our Northallerton Carers group has been running since 2003 and offers carers that support people with mental illness the chance to come together in a relaxed and welcoming environment. Our friendly group offers a safe space for people to share their experiences freely and without judgement, so our members feel less isolated and more supported. We provide information, share knowledge and skills, and occasionally organise for speakers to attend meetings to keep us up-to-date with changes to services and care. We actively welcome speakers from our local trusts and services as this provides a valuable opportunity for visiting professionals to gain an insight into the lives of carers, which will hopefully lead to better communication and understanding in the future and service improvements. Visiting speakers from other organisations provide other helpful information, including practical help, benefits advice and where to access additional help to support members in their caring role at home. Our meetings are strongly supported by our local carer support officer and The Northallerton Carers’ Centre. As well as offering information and support, we try to have some fun and organise a few social events. We warmly welcome new members.
