Durham County Carers Support aims to improve the health and wellbeing of Carers caring for someone in County Durham

Durham County Carers Support is a registered Charity and Company Limited by Guarantee.  We are a voluntary organisation that provides free high quality services and support to unpaid Carers over the age of 18 who support someone living in the County Durham area.  Click here to find out how we can help you.

We pride ourselves on helping those who help others by offering a range of services from: Carer support; training for Carers; helping to give Carers some extra time to look after their own wellbeing; and to take a break.
