Who is a carer?

A carer is someone who provides unpaid help and support to family or friends. You could be caring for a partner, child, relative, friend or a neighbour who is ill, frail, disabled or who has mental health or substance misuse problems; anyone can become a carer at any age.

Recognising yourself as a carer can be a way of acknowledging that you have an important role. Your role may be rewarding but one which can also be stressful and demanding. As a carer it is important that you are aware of the range of services available to support you in your caring role and to help you manage the impact caring has on your own health and well-being.
