Message from the Chief Officer and Chair of Trustees                    17th March 2020

We are writing to you all regarding the current situation with the spread of Covid-19, we know this will and is causing concerns for yourselves and the persons you care for and for those living on their own.
SRCR will continue to provide on-going support for all our service-users over these challenging times.  Please be assured our office will remain open for telephone contact only by a small skeleton staff team, so we are always at the end of the phone.    We will be in regular telephone contact with our existing service-users, to help address immediate issues and offering emotional support over the coming weeks/months.
We will continue to accept all referrals - whilst we will not be able to undertake home visits or meet in our outreach provision, please be assured our staff are highly skilled and experienced in offering ‘helplines’/support over the phone.  We already provide this service and it has been an exceptionally successful provision tried and tested in our daily work routines. 
We are looking at ways to continue to support patients discharged from hospitals through our Home from Hospital services to ensure we keep people safe and well, and they have the provisions they need once they get home.
SRCR's main priority is to stay in contact with our service users, especially if you need to keep yourself isolated at home.
We will be in contact with all service-users, partners and funders on a regular basis to ensure we keep everyone updated, informed and most importantly supported to the very best of our ability. 
Please stay safe and contact us, we are here to help 01723850155 or

Chief Officer                          Chair of Trustees  

All groups cancelled

Please note all our groups and activities are cancelled for the foreseeable future

Please keep an eye on this website and our social media pages for updates

Our support workers are working hard to provide telephone support as much as possible.  Please see the above notice from our Chief Officer and Chair of Trustees 

Young Carers Awareness Day

Count Me In!

We are supporting the Carers Trust Count Me In! campaign which is calling on schools to do more to proactively identify young carers and to ensure that they receive the recognition and support they deserve. 

The Young Carers team from Scarborough & Ryedale Carers Resource will be visiting schools in the the area this week to spread the word that there is support available.  We will be bringing 'pop-up' stands of information to school corridors and reception areas.  Look out for us if you're a young carer or know someone who is - we're here to help.

Lots of local schools have already received notice board packs and are sign posting to the Young Carers service via school notice boards, websites or their social media. We are working with schools to be present at parents evenings with a number booked in for February & March. We have already offered a SEN parents drop in with Braeburn school and on Young Carers Day itself a pupil from St Martins C of E Primary is raising money for Scarborough & Ryedale Carers Resource by hosting a casual clothes day, supported by the school. We have lunch time hubs also booked this week at Lady Lumley’s and Norton College.

Working with Eastenders

SRCR were delighted to be part of the team advising on script development for the recent young carer’s story line on EASTENDERS.  It was a privilege to be part of this work and a huge thanks must go to the ‘Team Eastenders’ for getting it right on screen, and raising the profile of the challenges young carers face.   Our work on this couldn’t have come at a better time following the NHS announcements last week regarding the increased support for young carers through GP’s surgeries.  Click the link below to read more.

Note: The autoplay attribute does not work on some mobile devices.

Scarborough & Ryedale Carers Resource is proud to be supporting and improving the lives of Carers 52 weeks a year, but on this special week, we are delighted the national spotlight is helping us raise awareness of the hidden army of carers who support their family and friends through challenging times.

Please take time to click on the video link above to meet our team - without them over 2500 carers per year across the Coast and Vale would not benefit from their support, knowledge and experience.
