In response to feedback from our carer members we are supporting a carers issues group.
You are a carer if you provide (unpaid) support and care for someone who has an illness, disability, mental health problem or addiction. Being someone’s carer probably only describes part of your relationship with them. You may also be a parent, partner, sister, brother, child, friend or other family member.
This relationship can be just as (or more) important to you. You may also have other caring roles as well, for example as a parent to other children. Supporting others can be mentally and physically exhausting. The time you spend caring can really vary too – some people look after someone for just a short time and others find themselves caring for someone for the long term. Our carers are fully involved and direct the content of meetings.
