Are you a carer?
Do you look after a family member or friend who needs help as a result of ageing, disability, substance abuse, physical or mental illness? If so, then you are a carer.
Being an unpaid carer can have an effect on your own health and well-being and can also lead to social isolation.
Let us know that you are a carer so we can support you. If no-one knows that you are a carer it can be harder to get the support you need.
