Are You a Carer?

What is a carer?
A Carer is anyone who cares, unpaid, for a friend or family member who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction cannot cope without their support.
Why do carers need help?
Many people who are supporting someone do not see themselves as a ‘carer’ but as relatives or friends. Caring for others can be complex and demanding, physically taxing and mentally draining.
Carers often become so focused on the person they care for that they forget to look after themselves.
