Who is a carer? ….. You could be

A carer is someone who looks after a family member, partner, friend or neighbour who due to illness, disability, frailty or addiction is unable to manage alone. 

Carers provide unpaid care and support involving, for example, personal care (washing, bathing, dressing, feeding), cooking, shopping housework and giving emotional support.
