Do you need help?

If you are doing any of these things without getting paid, then you are a carer:

  • if you support someone who is frail, has a long-term illness, mental health issues or a disability
  • if you look after someone after a stay in hospital
  • if you are a looking after a disabled child

If you are under the age of 18 years old then you are a Young Carer.
