Carers’ Resource opens new base in Selby from July 1st

Last changed: Tuesday 21 June, 2022

Carers’ Resource is opening a new base to provide support for unpaid carers of all ages across the Selby district from July 1, 2022.

The charity has been supporting carers across Harrogate, Bradford and Craven districts for many years, providing emotional and practical help to anyone who is looking after a family member or friend with a disability, mental or physical illness, addiction or frailty.

A drop-in event is taking place at the new Carers’ Resource Selby base, at Community House, Portholme Road, Selby, YO8 4QQ, on Friday July 1 from 11am-1pm.

Anyone interested in finding out more about the services available for carers is invited to pop in for a chat.

Chris Whiley, CEO of Carers’ Resource, said: “We’re really excited about opening our new base in Selby and being able to offer our services to unpaid carers across the district.

“We know there are many carers who need our support in the Selby area and we look forward to working with them.

“Our services are free, confidential, and non-judgmental; we’re here to listen to carers about what they need. We provide one-to-one information, advice and support, as well as opportunities to meet other carers at our groups. We can support with carers’ finances, benefits and grants, and help you plan for the future.

“Please do come along to our new base on July 1 if you would like to find out more.”

Earlier this year Carers’ Resource was awarded a contract by North Yorkshire County Council to provide services for carers in Harrogate, Craven and Selby. The contract runs for the next three years, with an option to extend it further.
