Carers

Are you a carer?

Someone who looks after a partner, relative, friend or disabled child who needs support because of their sickness, age or disability?

Because being a carer is demanding, you need to be aware of all the services which are available to enable you to continue to carry out your important work.

Experienced help is always at hand

The government’s website direct.gov.uk/carersprovides information on support services, financial matters (benefits) and social service assessments as well as useful links.
