As a carer, you understandably want to do your best for the person you look after – but what happens if you are unexpectedly unable to care for them? And what if no one else knows that this person depends on you? This is where the Emergency Support Service can help. The service enables carers to plan for emergencies and, should one happen, will provide up to 48 hours emergency support, which can be extended over a bank holiday. The support staff will assess the situation and contact other relevant services if care is required for a longer period.  View details at: https://www.gateshead.gov.uk
