Looking after someone: Information and support for carers in England

Looking after someone is a new guide for carers in England. This guide is designed to outline your rights as a carer and the support available to you.

Whether you are a new carer or have been caring for someone for a while, it’s important that you understand your rights and you are able to access the support that is available to you, as soon as you need it. Many people are taking on more caring responsibilities for their relatives and friends who are disabled, ill or older and who need support.

The 'Looking after someone' guide touches on a range of things from financial support to coping with feelings of guilt. If you'd like to read the guide, click here. 

We have a dedicated Carers zone on our website, which you can find here.
