Information for carers

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 websites are intending to help those who are carers cope better.

Carers UK

Carers UK is a charity set up to help the millions of people who care for family or friends. They 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.

They work with over 43,000 individuals and their families, helping carers make a life of their own outside caring.
