For information, support and advice call the Carers Trust helpline

A carer is anyone who cares unpaid for a friend or family member who due to illness, disability, a mental health condition or an addiction cannot cope without their support.

Do you look after a family member or friend who couldn’t manage without your help?

Maybe you care for a child with a learning or physical disability?

Perhaps you look after someone who is frail, ill, has a disability, mental ill health, or substance misuse issues?
