Carers Direct

If you are please let us know – we may be able to help you with further information or any help that you may need.  

  • Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling people you’re a carer is important so they understand and can support you.
  • Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it’s essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.
  • Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home? Read our guide to housing for carers.

There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some websites that we hope you will find useful.
