If you provide unpaid help or look after a family member or friend who is ill, disabled, frail or elderly who can’t manage without your support then you are a carer.
Many people caring for a relative don’t think of themselves as being a carer and many carers don’t realise that support is available to support them in their caring role and help them maintain their own health and well-being. GP practices and Carers Centres are trying to work together so that carers will have easier accesss to the help and support that they are entitled to.
Please let us know if you are a carer or contact Sunderland Carer’s Centre directly at the address or telephone number below.
Sunderland carer’s Centre offers a confidential advice, information and support service to carers throughout the City of Sunderland.
