Are you a Carer or do you have a Carer?

  • Did you know that 1 in 8 people in Britain is a Carer?
  • Are you one of them?
  • Carers do not always recognise themselves as such.

Carers look after family, partners or friends because they have an illness, mental health problem, or are frail or elderly.  A carer can be of any age.

If you are a carer or you know someone who is, please let us know so that we can inform you/them of relevant services and provide useful information.

You can also visit the Carers UK website and Carers Trust for help and advise.

A young carer is a child or young person living with a parent or sibling with a disability and/or illness such as mental ill health, substance misuse or physical illness. Please visit Cheshire Young Carers website for help and advise.

If you are a carer for an older person, living in a rural community, please visit the BreakTime page.

All carers are entitled to a free flu vaccination.  Please contact reception during our flu campaign to arrange an appointment.
