Support for carers

1. Being a carer

Carers provide regular unpaid emotional or physical support to a friend, neighbour or family member.

Carers can be any age and provide many different kinds, amounts and levels of support.

We have commissioned services for all carers and developed links with a range of other organisations who can also offer information and support.

We are committed to work jointly across health and social care to support adult carers to fulfil their caring role, helping them to have a life outside of caring, and maintaining and protecting their own health and well-being.
