Carers Information & Support

Does someone rely on you for support?

You are an Adult or Young Carer if you provide unpaid support to a family member, neighbour or friend who is unable to cope without your help. They could need support because they are ill, frail, disabled or have a mental health or substance misuse problem. You do not have to live in the same household as the person you look after.

Perhaps you…

  • Shop for someone?
  • Give emotional support?
  • Arrange and attend medical appointments?
  • Help with financial matters like paying bills?
  • Cleaning and Ironing?
  • Assist a person on a day-to-day basis?

If you help someone with any of the above, then please let us know by filling out the form on this page!

Why should I let the surgery know?

  • Information and Advice from the Surgery
  • Links to Support Groups
  • Priority Free Flu & COVID Vaccinations
