A new Carers Emergency Contact Scheme is offering additional support to carers.
The scheme, funded by Doncaster Council, means that once a carer is registered they can receive free replacement support which can be put in place up to 48 hours if the emergency occurs Monday to Friday or 72 hours if it happens on a weekend or Bank Holiday.
The support is offered if the carer is unable to care or something unexpected happens.
Any adult living in Doncaster who cares for another adult in the borough can apply.
To register or find out more about the scheme, call Doncaster Carers Service, Carers Moving Forward on 01302 812827.
