Who are carers?


A carer is someone who provides unpaid, often intensive support to family or friends who could not manage without that support. They could be caring for a relative, partner, friend or neighbour who is ill, frail, disabled, or has mental health or substance misuse problems.

Anyone can be a carer - our youngest registered carer is aged just 6, and a persons caring role can sometimes last for decades.


Some carers can care for more than one person, some carers have a disability or illness themselves and some have a paid job alongside their caring role. If you are a carer you are just as important as the person you care for. Help and support is available for you!
