Support for carers

Caring for someone

We recognise and appreciates that carers are vital, and the value of their support incalculable , for the well being of the person they are caring for.

Are you a carer?

A carer is someone who regularly cares, without payment, for a relative, partner or friend, who due to illness, disability, vulnerability or frailty cannot manage at home without help. Carers can come from all walks of life, can be of any age and can be of any racial origin. 

If you look after a relative, friend or disabled child who needs
support to live at home then....YOU ARE A CARER!

Getting care and support

Care assessments

Carer’s assessments are for adult carers of adults (over 18 years) who are disabled, ill or elderly. The assessment is an opportunity to discuss with us what support or services you need. The assessment will look at how caring affects your life, including for example, physical, mental and emotional needs, and whether you are able or willing to carry on caring.

Getting a break from caring

If you’re a full-time carer or spend a lot of time caring for someone, it's important to make time for yourself, too – both for the sake of your own health and wellbeing and to give you the energy to carry on caring. Find out more about taking a break.
