Are you a Carer click here

An unpaid family friend carer is a person of any age, includes young carers, who provide unpaid support to a partner, family member, or friend who could not manage without their help and support due to their illness, frailty, disability, a mental health problem, an addiction, or it could be someone who has dementia or a learning disability.

There is no one size fits all, you can be offering support a few hours a week, or round the clock care, you may be living in the same house with the person you care for, or you maybe be living separately
