If you look after a relative, friend or neighbour who because of illness, disability or the effects of age, cannot manage at home without help then you are a carer and we can help you.
A carer doesn't have to be someone who lives with the person they care for or be related to them. If you care for them, then you are a carer.
If you are under the age of 18 and you help care for someone then the Young Carers Support will help you.
There is a support network for parents and carers for children with additional needs which provides information and support.
