aims to support all unpaid
carers by providing information, advice, social and emotional
Are you a carer?
You are a carer if you provide unpaid support to family or friends who could not manage without your help. You could be caring for your parent, your son or daughter, your brother or sister, your partner or former partner or your friend or neighbour. You care for them due to their illness, disability, mental ill health or substance misuse problem. We are here for YOU
If you want to talk things over - we offer you support by listening to you. If you want to know about services available or what you may be entitled to receive - we offer information to help you "through the system".
If you don't know where to turn - we offer advice to help you make choices. What we offer

"As a young adult carer I don't think I would have made it through each day without the support from a carers support worker who understood what I was going through. They helped so much, answering questions, giving me guidance and being someone I could talk to whenever I needed to. I will be eternally grateful for this" C.I. aged 29
