I am a carer

carer with a mentally handicapped and disabled woman looking at cucumbersA carer is someone who provides unpaid support to family or friends. This could be caring for a relative, partner or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or substance misuse issues.

A young carer is a child or young person aged 18 years or under who helps to look after a family member who has a disability, mental health condition, illness or a substance misuse problem.

It doesn’t matter how often or regularly you are caring for someone or where that care takes place, you should have support with this role.

Carers assessments

If your wellbeing and day-to-day life is affected, you can ask for a carers assessment so that services and support can help you to look after yourself and the person you care for.
