Are You a Carer?

If you are a carer please let us know - we may be able to help you

For further information about Carers please visit Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

  • Caring for a parent

    Watch this video on: caring for a parent at home

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?

PPE guidance for unpaid Carers
Every-One have published guidance outlining Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) advice for unpaid carers who do not live with the person they care for (other unpaid carers may choose to use this guide). It should be used alongside guidance for those who provide unpaid care to friends or family and local policies where they exist such as in care homes or day centres.
