Who is a Carer?

A carer can be anyone, of any age, even someone under 18 (often known as a young carer).

A parent of a disabled child or young person could also classed as a carer.
There are lots of people who are carers, but some find it difficult to see themselves in this role.

Some people do not want to labelled as a carer, as for them, being a carer is part of normal, everyday life.
As a result, they often don’t realise that there is support available for them as well as the person they care for.
