Scarborough & Ryedale Carers Resource - Carers Support

Scarborough & Ryedale Carers Resource, Scarborough


We are a local charity covering Scarborough, Whitby and Ryedale, providing free and confidential support for unpaid carers from the age of 8 upwards within our young carers services as well as adult carers support.

A carer is someone who looks after a member of their family or a friend when they have an illness, condition, a disability or are elderly. This includes mental health illness and difficulties arising from substance misuse. If you spend time looking after someone who depends on you because they are ill, frail or disabled, we're here to help you! 

We provide information, advice and guidance to carers to help reduce the impact of their caring role. Particularly when things can become a struggle.
