Carers Week 2020

Making Carers Visible - Carers Week 2020

When you're caring for someone, it is really important to ensure that you look after yourself too. This is particularly important at the moment when some people are increasing the amount of unpaid care they provide. 

Caring can be very rewarding, but without the right support it can have a negative impact on your health, career, finances and relationships. 

This year, you may have found that your caring role has become more challenging, or you may have taken on new caring responsibilities.

    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.
