North Lincolnshire Carers’ Support Centre

Do you look after someone who is ill, frail, or disabled?  If so, you are a Carer

We are working with groups and communities to let them know about the free services we offer carers in North Lincolnshire, with a focus on finding “hidden carers”. A carer is someone who provides unpaid care to a family member, friend or partner who is ill, frail, or disabled who could not otherwise manage without your support.

The care you provide can be practical, personal, emotional or supervisory. You may need help with bathing, toileting, grocery shopping, paying bills, doctors’ appointments or just be there on the other end of the phone for reassurance.

The word “Carer” is used for people who provide unpaid care as opposed to those who are paid such as care workers, personal assistants, and home helps.

The Carers’ Support Centre at Jessie Wilcox House, 11 Redcombe Lane, Brigg, North Lincolnshire DN20 8AU, is here to help Carers who care for someone living in North Lincolnshire.  Telephone: 01652 650585 (Main Office) or 01652 601973 (Ideal Community Care Solutions [Home Care]) or e-mail:
