The Stockton Adult Carers Support Service has a limited amount of funding available to organisations or individuals to support the development of peer support groups for unpaid carers within Stockton-on-Tees who are over 18 years of age.

The funding may be used for costs arising from the establishment of the group, for example the cost of room hire, promotional materials, the hire or purchase of relevant equipment, the expenses of speakers, etc.

Funding requests will also be considered to enable existing peer support groups to expand their membership, locations or frequency of meetings in response to increased demand.

If you or your organisation would like further information on this opportunity you can contact Rebecca Gray (Carers Service Manager) on 01642 524494 or email carerssupport@stockton.gov.uk for an informal chat.
