About care and support

You are a carer if you are spending a regular amount of time looking after or supporting someone. This could be a relative, partner or friend who without your support or the help of other carers would be unable to live independently.

Many people do not see themselves as carers straight away, they are simply doing what anyone would, caring unpaid for a loved one or friend, helping them through when they are unable to do things for themselves.
