Being a carer

Sub heading

Do you provide help and support to a family member, friend or neighbour who couldn't manage without your help? If you do, you are a carer.

In April 2015 care and support changed for the better. Under the Government’s Care Act, carers had their rights put into law for the first time, allowing them to get the support they need for their own wellbeing.
