Support for Carers

A carer is someone who cares for a person who needs regular assistance because of an illness, disability or the inability to do some everyday tasks on their own.  Carers can be of any age, from the very young to the very old.

The role of a carer can develop very gradually or it can happen suddenly, the care might be for the short-term or it could last many years.
