Being a carer can have a huge impact on your own life. We offer advice on how to look after yourself and get the support that you need

You are a carer if you provide unpaid support to someone who could not manage without your help. Many people do not think of themselves as carers, just someone who is looking after a relative or friend. Carers do a vital, demanding job often without any help or support. You can get help as a carer regardless of whether the person you care for gets support from the council or pays for their own care.
