Serving the people of Bradford, Harrogate, Selby and Craven Districts

We specialise in helping carers and vulnerable people. We believe carers and vulnerable people alike need care themselves.

We exist to work with and for carers and vulnerable people by:

  • promoting awareness of their needs
  • providing information, advice and support to them and to those who work with them
  • supporting other organisations, statutory and independent in their work with them

We are committed to:

  • delivering and improving services for carers and vulnerable people, providing information, advice, representation and advocacy as well as other services appropriate to their needs
  • working in partnership with commissioners, service providers, carers and vulnerable people to bring about improvements
  • maintaining and developing a sound and effective organisation

Supporting All Communities

Carers’ Resource respects and celebrates diversity. We recognise that carers from different backgrounds may have a range of needs.

Our staff can help if you need translated written information or to speak to someone in your own language. Your cultural and religious beliefs will be taken into account when offering support. We will always keep your information confidential.

We have produced a number of videos in English, Hindi, Urdu, Czech, Polish and Arabic, explaining what an unpaid carer is, and how Carers’ Resource can support you. To watch these videos please click here: Videos about Carers’ Resource in English, Hindi, Urdu, Czech, Polish and Arabic.

LGBTQ+ Communities

We aim to ensure that LGBTQ+ carers are treated with the same respect and dignity afforded to other carers.

We recognise that there may be additional barriers which prevent LGBTQ+ carers from accessing support. You may worry about discrimination or people not understanding your situation. We are here to listen to your concerns, in confidence. There is support for you as a carer, and you will find Carers’ Resource is a welcoming place with friendly support groups, whoever you are.

As a carer you are entitled to be involved in the decision making and discussions about the care of the person you are looking after, if they want you to be. This applies irrespective of whether you are married, in a civil partnership or neither, or if you are looking after a friend or relative. However caring affects you, we’re here. Please contact us if you need us.
