Support For Carers

A carer is someone who provides support to family or friends who couldn’t manage without this help.

Anyone can become a carer, and carers come from all walks of life, all cultures and can be any age. Many feel that they’re doing what anyone would do in the same situation, caring for a mother, father, wife, husband, son, daughter or best friend, for example. Around 3 in 5 people  will be carers at some point in their lives.
