Carer Support and Assessments

What does it do?

Provides support and assessments for carers.

Who it is for?

You may be a carer without realising it. Many people help their husband or wife, partner, another family member or friend to live at home, when they are frail or have an illness or disability. You might look after a disabled child, a parent with mental health problems or an elderly relative. If so, you are a carer, whether you are an adult, young person or a child. The word 'carer' here, does not mean a foster carer or someone who provides care as part of their job.
