What is a carer?
A carer is someone who provides unpaid personal care, support and assistance to family members and/or friends with disability, mental illness, a chronic condition, terminal illness, alcohol or other drug issues, or who are frail aged.
Carers make a significant difference in the lives of the people they care for, and also make an invaluable social and economic contribution through the support they provide.
