Adult Carers

 
 
 

There are around seven million carers in the UK  – that is one in ten people. This is rising.

  

Caring for someone, whether they are elderly, frail, have a life long illness, mental health condition, addiction or maybe a physical or learning disability, can be very rewarding. It can also be very tiring and stressful and have an impact of the Carer’s own health and wellbeing.

  

Many people do not think of themselves as Carers. They just do the right thing for the people they love and don’t expect any help. We understand that Carers often experience isolation, stress, guilt and anger, and that caring can be emotionally draining.

  

By providing information, emotional and practical support, we aim to ease the stress Carers find themselves under, and help them to be better equipped for their caring role.
