Carers - local information

Do you provide unpaid support to a partner, child, relative or friend who couldn’t manage to live independently or whose well-being would deteriorate without your help? This could be due to frailty, disability or serious health condition, mental ill health or substance misuse.  

If so, you are a carer. 

Let us know and we can: 
  • direct you to sources of support and advice
  • offer health checks and flu jabs to keep you healthy,
  • be alert to the health risks carers can face when we see you
  • be sympathetic in finding appointments when you are able to attend.

 

Who looks after carers?  Here are some places to start.
