Helpful information for carers

Planning for an emergency

Northamptonshire Carers will develop a crisis plan with you as part of a Carer's Assessment.

For carers in crisis, visit the Northamptonshire Carers website.

Breaks for carers

A carer's break (or respite care) can give you a break from your caring role.

Find out more about carers' breaks on the Northamptonshire Carers website.

The Herbert Protocol

The Herbert Protocol is a form that carers, family or friends of a vulnerable person, or the person themselves can fill in in case a person goes missing.    

Find out more about The Herbert Protocol on the Northamptonshire Police website - this site includes a video explaining the protocol and the form to download for free.
