To enable us to continue to offer information, advice and support services to carers we are closing the Sunderland Carers Centre building to the public. We ask that any carers wishing to access the service to do so by calling 0191 5493768, using the quick contact section of our website or messaging us via social media (Facebook/Twitter), in order to reduce the risk of any potential transmission of coronavirus.

As a matter of precaution, so that we are not placing anyone at risk and following the government’s current advice regarding Covid-19 (coronavirus), we have unfortunately taken the decision to cancel all of our Carer Peer Support groups until further notice. This is in addition to the fact that some of the venues we use for the groups have now informed us that they are cancelling their room hire. We appreciate that this may cause some concern to you, however we do hope that you can understand that we need to follow the national guidance issued. We will be in touch as soon as we are in a position to let carers know when the groups will restart.

We appreciate that anxieties are high for a lot of people and during this period we are offering information, advice and support via telephone and email. Please do not hesitate to contact us for ongoing support.
