If you look after someone, anyone, we are here for you…

At Sunderland Carers Centre we provide support for people who look after others. That doesn’t mean professional carers. We support people who care for their husband, wife, mam, dad, son, daughter, sibling, friend or other relative. We offer information, advice and guidance to carers in and around Sunderland – and it’s all confidential, non-judgemental and impartial.

The Carers Centre is a “centrepoint” for carers in the city, assisting directly when and where we can and linking people with other organisations when more appropriate, to ensure every user gets the support they require.
