Am I a Carer? A carer is anyone who, unpaid, looks after a friend or family member who can't cope alone due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction. Anyone can become a carer. Carers come from all walks of life, all cultures and can be any age. Many people don't recognise themselves as carers. We provide a friendly confidential service specifically to help you in your caring role. Have a look through our website to see what we can offer or give us a call on 01475 735180 to speak with a Carer Support Worker. We also offer a drop in service so feel free to pop in for a cuppa and a chat.
