North East


If you are planning a fundraising event for the CBF, or know of an upcoming free event for family carers, please get in touch and let us know.

Please note that the inclusion of family carer events run by other organisations in this list does not constitute a recommendation from the CBF.

Local Champions

Local champions are family carers who volunteer for the CBF, representing us at events and conferences and sharing our information and resources. Some local champions are also happy to run discussion groups and give talks.

To find out more about what our local champions do, please have a look at the volunteering page or download our Book a Local Champion flyer. If you would like to book a local champion to come along to your event, please email
