Carer support

You may be giving emotional support, or have to keep a close eye on the person you care for. Caring for someone can be demanding, and being identified as a carer can be important to get the support you need to continue in your caring role.

What is a Carer

A carer provides unpaid support to a family member, partner, friend or neighbour, who could not manage at home without help, due to any of the following:

  • ill health
  • frailty
  • disability
  • mental ill health
  • eating disorder
  • substance misuse problems

You may be providing practical and physical help such as:

  • cleaning
  • cooking
  • bathing
  • lifting
  • dressing
