I Look After Someone
Who do we mean when we say ‘Carer’?
The Department of Health defines a Carer as someone who “spends a large part of their life providing unpaid support to family or potentially friends.”
This could be caring for a relative, partner or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or substance misuse problems.
Carers are important, and a play a vital role in our community.
If you are a carer, there is a lot of support out there – the next few pages of the website should help you find the help you need.
