Caring can take its toll on your finances, your health, your career and your family and your social life. Carers can fall out of paid work and many rely on low-level benefits. These other services (not linked to the hospice) may be useful.
Carers UK help carers to get the best for the person they care for, make the most of their income, stay in paid work, keep healthy, get in touch with other carers for support, find a listening ear and campaign for change. Find more information on Carers UK.
Carers Trust offers practical advice on money and benefits, getting a break, your legal rights, health and wellbeing and support if you are a young carer. See Carers Trust for more information.
