Adult Carer Support

Supporting Unpaid Carers

Our Adult Carer Support services are there to empower unpaid carers.

You are an unpaid carer if you support a family member or friend who is ill, disabled, elderly, has mental health issues or substance misuse problems. The support you offer may be emotional or include shopping, cooking, dealing with medication, or attending medical appointments with the person you care for. The person you care for could live with you, in their own home, or even in residential care.
