General Information for Carers

Are You a Carer?

You may not think of yourself as a carer but, according to Carers UK, a carer is anyone who gives their time to look after a friend or relative who needs help because they are ill, frail or disabled, and three in five people will be a carer at some point in their lives.  So if you provide practical and emotional support for someone on an ongoing basis in order to help them live independently, a carer is exactly what you are.
