Carers Campion and Care for Carers

Why do we have a Carers Champion?

A carer is anyone who cares, unpaid, for a friend or family member who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction cannot cope without their support.

How does caring affect your life?

For many carers, caring can be a positive and rewarding experience but there are many reasons why you made need additional support.

  •  Financial
  •  Health and Wellbeing
  •  Getting out and about
  •  Solitude and Isolation
  •  Working and learning
