A carer is someone who, without payment, provides help and support to a partner, child, relative or friend who could not manage without their help. Every caring situation is different and there are a wide range of reasons why they may need help, including illness, age, disability, alcohol or substance abuse, and mental health issues.
Many people do not recognise themselves as carers. Age has no bearing on being a carer and a large number of carers are under 18 years old.
We will listen to your story and help you access the advice, information and support which best meets your needs. We understand the importance of care for the carers.
