Personal Assistant Register

,

We have recently launched the personal assistant register, where people looking to work as a personal assistant or carer can be matched with local people looking for help. This register gives those who may wish to organise their own care and support access to people who are looking for work in the caring field.

The register will also be available to people who may be having their care arranged through a care manager. For more information or to be added to the register, please call us on: 01434 600599.

Annual General Meeting 2018

,

Thanks go to everyone who came along to out AGM this year, to hear from Chair, Pat Maginn and Director, Liz Prudhoe about the work undertaken over the year 2017/18. This informal event was a chance for members and partner organisations to get together and look back at what has been achieved and what is planned for the coming year. The new Personal Assistant Register was launched at the meeting – this is a register held by Adapt (NE), of people looking to work as a personal assistant or carer, so that those looking for help can find someone suitable in their local area. For more information please give us a call.

The AGM coincided with our first Community Information Morning, held in the resource centre, next to Cafe @ Burn Lane. Local organisations including Alzheimers Society, West Northumberland Food Bank and Carers Northumberland were on hand with advice and information for the general public and our AGM guests. We plan to hold these Information Mornings quarterly so look out for details of the next one in the new year.
