Caring for yourself
If you want help because you have care or support needs of your own - For example you may need help with getting around, with looking after yourself, or with managing shopping and cleaning, try our self help tool.
As a carer the self help tool can help you to find help for the person you care for.
Caring for others
If you are aged 18 or over and look after someone who is ill or disabled and needs your support, you are a carer, even if you may not think of yourself in that way. A carers assessment will help us to point you in the direction of support in your caring role.
