If you are a carer there is support to help you in your caring role.People become carers in many different ways. Sometimes they start helping someone out bit by bit. Sometimes it happens suddenly, because of an accident or illness. Carers can be family members or friends. They can be parents, children, siblings, grandparents or neighbours. You might not be the only person who provides care for someone and you may not provide care each day. Every situation is different.
