Many people don’t identify themselves as being a carer. A carer is someone who provides unpaid support to family or friends who could not manage without this help.

Caring can be a hugely rewarding experience, enriching relationships and bringing satisfaction and wellbeing. However, caring for others often comes at a cost to carers’ own health and wellbeing.
