Running for SRCR
John Suddaby is no ordinary Trustee for us at Scarborough & Ryedale Carers Resource - this weekend he will prove himself to be a super hero as he runs the Great North Run in support of the Charity.
John’s mum was diagnosed with Dementia in her late 70’s, Scarborough & Ryedale Carers Resource was John’s first port of call for help when he recognised he needed support with her care and getting the right people to help look after her.
John comments ‘The support offered by the team was invaluable; having a full time job, meant trying to sort everything and knowing where to go was impossible to sort alone. Two years ago I applied to become a trustee of SRCR to give something back - to help raise awareness of all the other carers looking after family members, and to help promote the services this fantastic organisation has to offer’.
We wish John lots and lots of luck - we are keeping our fingers crossed he runs and achieves a personal best - and most of all comes back to us with a big smile on his face!
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.

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.
