Adult carers

An adult carer is 18 years or older. They take responsibility for the care of relatives or friends who need help because of an illness, drug or alcohol misuse, disability or the effects of age.

It is important that carers have a say on the type of caring they are comfortable with providing. The time spent caring should also not get in the way of being able to have the same opportunities as other people.
