Are You a Carer?

If you are please let us know - we may be able to help you.

There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

Telling people
Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a Carer is important so they understand and can support you.

Taking a break
Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

Housing and carers
Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
