All at Furness Carers would like to wish all unpaid Carers and our supporters a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

As we all know 2020 has been a year of extreme challenges with plenty of soul searching and wonder of how and when we might get back to some kind of normality. With the recent announcement of a vaccination we can now see some light at the end of the tunnel. The team here at Furness Carers have continued to support unpaid Carers throughout the pandemic in the safest and best possible way, but all of us here would like to say a huge thank you to all the Carers, our supporters and partner organisations who have supported us and been so understanding in accepting the changes we needed to make for the safety of us all. We accept there are still uncertain times ahead for many of us but we are sure if we continue supporting each other we can get through this together.

As we hit the festive season the spirit of Christmas as never been as important as it is this year, and as we say a very welcome goodbye to 2020 we can all look on 2021 as one of hope and expectation that we will soon be able to get back to supporting unpaid Carers face-to-face in the ways that we all know are the real lifeblood of organisations like ours.

If you need to contact us for support or general enquiries then we request that you call our office on: 01229 822822, if it is not answered then please leave a message or email us on and we will get back to you ASAP.
