What is an unpaid carer?
A carer is anyone, a child or adult, who looks after a family member, partner, or friend, who needs help because of illness, frailty, disability, a mental health problem, or an addiction. The person would not be able to cope without the carer's support.
The care is given for free.
Am I a carer?
Does somebody rely on you for care and support?
Do you provide:
- practical support

- personal care
- physical help
- help with medication
- help with finances
If you answered yes to any of these, you are a carer.
