Carers provide unpaid care by looking after an ill, frail or disabled family member, friend or partner.
As well as providing assistance to adult carers, we also support young carers who are under 18 years of age.
These pages will give you an overview of what support is available to you, both financially and emotionally.
If you are ill or have an accident and you cannot carry on caring, you may want to use this useful template|| to record essential information. You could share this with the person who takes over from you.
