You are a Carer if - your life is significantly affected by looking after a person who is ill, frail or disabled in some way and you are not either getting paid for doing so or volunteering through an organisation. They could have mental ill health, learning difficulties, physical difficulties, be elderly and frail, or a combination of difficulties. This means that you could be caring for a friend, neighbour or relative, it could be your child, spouse, parent or cousin that you are caring for.
If this is you then please contact us to see if we can help you.
