Are you a Carer?
A Carer is someone who, without payment, provides care and support to a partner, disabled child, relative, friend or neighbor who could not manage without their help. You may help with their personal care, provide emotional or practical support or just ensure they are safe and coping. You many often feel isolated, overwhelmed and undervalued and as a carer YOU ARE IMPORTANT.
