Carers' Support

Formal and informal carers play a critical role in our care system.

You can get help and support if you’re responsible for looking after someone who has a disability, is getting old or has become ill. This can range from practical help to make day-to-day life easier to benefits like Carer’s Allowance. This NHS guide provides a helpful introduction.
