Carers Advice

Are You a Carer?

A carer is someone who cares, unpaid, for a friend or family member who,  due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or addiction cannot cope without their support.

  • A carer's assessment
  • Request flexible working from your employer
  • Receive financial support through Carer's Allowance
