Support for Carers

Who is a carer?
A carer is anyone who cares, unpaid, for a family member or friend who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction, cannot cope without their support.

Carers often neglect their own health and wellbeing.
Being a carer can be demanding emotionally, physically and financially.
We offer all carers an annual carers health check, during which we:
- Carry out a physical health check
- Discuss how you are coping as a carer
- Can refer to carers support and financial advice
- Offer an annual flu vaccination

You can also refer yourself for the LOOKING AFTER ME Course for Carers
