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

If you’re a professional working in the field of health, social care, education, or related areas, you are likely to meet many unpaid carers.

It’s important that you are able to identify carers and refer them to us so we can give them the support they need.

Please explore the sections below to find out how we can help you.

Identifying carers and referring them to Carers’ Resource helps:

  • Save money
    96% of carers suffer health and wellbeing problems as a result of caring. By supporting carers, Carers’ Resource saves health and social care services millions of pounds a year by improving carers’ physical and mental health.
  • Save time
    Referral to Carers’ Resource can prevent carer breakdown, helps carers to care for longer and reduces unplanned hospital admissions, saving time and resources.
  • Save lives

    “Carers’ Resource saved my life. Literally saved my life. I reached the stage where I wanted to end it all. That’s when the GP put me in touch with Carers’ Resource. I had nowhere else to turn. Without them I would not be here now.”
