Are you a Carer?
Six million people in the UK care for a relative, friend or partner, or for a child with a disability. Some carers are responsible for looking after someone 24 hours a day. Many share caring arrangements with other family members and friends. For some, caring is a role that they carry out most of their lives, for others, it can be a matter of a few months or years. Carers are of every age; there are very young carers and elderly carers.
If you are please let us know by texting Carer to 07800 000199 or completing the Carers Form (please note the person you care for must sign the second page providing consent)
We may be able to help you and will offer you a carers assessment and a FREE NHS flu jab.
How to get help when looking after someone
As a carer, you are entitled to an assessment by Social Services, to discuss the help that both you and the person you care for, might need.
