It is helpful to know if you have a carer (someone who takes on an unpaid caring role for you) or if you are a carer for someone else. We know how important it is that carers are supported both practically and emotionally.

We also may need to liaise with carers on how best to support the person needing care. So by letting us know we can ensure you are getting the right support for your role and are able to connect you with local support services and community networks.

Carers need caring for too!
