1 in 8 of us is a carer, giving time and energy, without pay, to care for friends or family who can’t manage on their own.
Carers fulfil a vital role in looking after others because of illness, frailty, disability or problems with drugs or alcohol. Support for carers continues to be an essential part of social care and health delivery. This is evidenced by supporting carers who look after others often with complex needs; whilst recognising the carer themselves may have their own health needs, time and monetary pressures.
