Carer's assessments

Before making a request

Caring for someone can be tough and so it is important to look after your health and wellbeing as much as possible.

You can find out about support available to you in your community at Connect to Support. It has information about a range of services to support the person you are looking after, as well as for yourself.

You can also access a range of digital resources from Carers UK, to help with:

  • health and wellbeing
  • working and caring
  • nutrition
  • technology

You can also call the Carers UK national helpline on 0808 808 7777 Monday to Friday 9am – 6pm or email

If you feel you need more support, you can request a carer's assessment. It will help to find out what your needs are and how we can best support you.
