SUPPORTING UNPAID CARERS
You are an unpaid carer if you support a family member or friend that is ill, disabled, elderly, has mental health issues or substance misuse problems. The support you offer may include shopping, cooking, dealing with medication, or attending medical appointments with the person you care for. The person you care for could live with you, in their own home, or even in residential care.
