Help in an Emergency

Within the carer’s assessment process, there is the opportunity to consider what support the person you care for would need if you were temporarily unable to provide assistance. If you would like more information on this, please ask the person carrying out the assessment.

Carers Emergency Support Service

Provided by Human Support Group. This service offers carers peace of mind by making sure that the person they care for can be looked after if an emergency arises. The service is available to all carers of adults in Darlington and County Durham.

Carers who register with the service draw up an emergency plan which identifies 3 family members, friends or neighbours as emergency contacts. If they are not available, or there are no nominated contacts, short term support is provided by the service provider until alternative arrangements can be made by Adult Social Care.

For more information contact Human Support Group on 03300 882367.
