Do you look after someone?
A carer is someone who, without payment, provides help to a relative or friend who could not manage otherwise due to illness, disability, frailty, mental health, drug or alcohol issues. Anyone can be a carer. Some carers care for an ill partner, an elderly parent or a child with additional needs and some carers are children who look after a parent. Many carers combine this with working, running a home and looking after children. Every caring situation is different but what carers have in common is that they usually put their own needs last.
The Carers’ Resource provides support for carers, no matter what their age, race, religion or needs. Follow the links to discover what support we can offer you as a carer, or as someone who might work with carers.
