Are you a carer?
A carer is anyone who cares, unpaid, for a friend or family member who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction cannot cope without their support.
If you look after your partner, or a relative or friend who is ill or disabled, you are a carer, even if you don’t think of yourself that way. There are many ways that you might care for someone.
