Promoting and supporting voluntary activity across South Northamptonshire


Opportunities with Northamptonshire Carers - Community Companions

Northamptonshire Carers was formed in 1992 and is an independent local charity that is part of Carers Trust for Carers national network of Carers Centres and services. We are a countrywide service offering support to Carers and Young Carers. We are staffed by people who understand the physical and emotional strain that looking after someone can involve as well as the pleasure it can bring. Having a person to talk to and having rights explained can often help a carers situation. Listening to the experiences of carers enables us to help. One of the services we provide to help support Carers is Community Companions. This takes the form of low-level support provided by volunteers e.g. companions to visit a person being cared for allowing their carer time away from their caring role for up to 3 hours on a bi-weekly basis. Northamptonshire Carers offer a comprehensive range of services, including telephone support, carers cafes and specific health conditions support groups to carers living in Northamptonshire
