Are you a carer?

What does it do?

Do you help a family member, partner, friend or neighbour regularly? Would this person have difficulty managing without your support? Did you know support is available for you in your caring role?

A carer is anyone who provides unpaid care to a family member, partner or friend who needs help because of their illness, frailty, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction and cannot cope without their support. Carers help with things such as:

Washing, dressing or taking medicines

Getting out and about and travelling to doctors' appointments

Shopping, cleaning and laundry

Paying bills and organising finances

Providing emotional support by sitting with someone to keep them company and watching over them if they can't be left alone.
