If you’re looking after someone who could not manage without your help due to a physical or mental health problem, learning disability, dementia, alcohol or substance mis-use then you are a carer.
In North Somerset, the Carers Support Alliance provides support to both young and adults carers to enable them to continue caring whilst supporting them to have a life of their own, outside of their caring role.
Carers Emergency Response Scheme
Are you concerned about what would happen to the person you look after if you were unable to care for them due to an emergency, e.g. if you were admitted to hospital or had an accident? The council has an emergency response scheme to ensure they would get the support they need. If you need further information please use the following form.
