Support and advice for carers
Whilst some people may not think of themselves as carers, if you provide regular unpaid emotional or physical support to someone, you are a carer. Caring for someone can pose many challenges, most commonly physical, emotional, and often financial strains.
We recognise the vital role carers play in society and, in turn, the need for comprehensive support systems carers can access to stay happy and healthy themselves. Adequate support not only acknowledges their dedication to being a carer but also ensures their ability to sustain the essential care they provide.
You can find out more about the types of support available for carers using the links below.
If you are an adult or young person who cares for someone who couldn’t cope without you, there is health and wellbeing support for you on the Warwickshire County Council website.
Caring Together Warwickshire is the name for the new service offered to informal carers across Warwickshire. For support and advice, please access their website.
