If you’re one of the thousands of people across the North East who helps look after relatives, friends and neighbours in their own homes, the Directors of Adult Social Services in Local Authorities across the North East would like to hear from you.

You might help an elderly relative with their shopping, meals or keeping their home spick and span – or it might be even more personal care, like dressing, bathing or with their medicines.

You might help an adult with learning disabilities in living a fulfilling and independent life out in the community.

Or you might be providing support for a friend or neighbour who is facing difficulties with addiction.

Whatever the kind of care you provide, and whoever it is for, this survey will help them understand the issues and challenges you face, so that they can support you better. The care you provide is invaluable, so thank you for everything you do.

Please complete the survey online HERE.

The survey is available for you to complete until 14th May 2021.
