Do you support a family member or a friend with any of these tasks?
- Paying bills
- Emotional support
- Washing and dressing
- Doctor visits
Then you are a carer.
You are a carer if you regularly do daily tasks for someone, or look after friends or family without getting paid.
We know that you are committed to your caring role but we believe that carers also have a right to a life of their own.
Young carers care for a family member or friend in an unpaid capacity, enabling them to live more independently.
