A carer is some who provides unwaged help and support to a parent, partner, child, relative, friend or neighbour.
The person they care for may need help due to age, physical or mental health, substance misuse or disability.
A carer does not always live with the person they care for, or care for them full time.
You might think of yourself as the person’s wife/husband/partner/parent, or their son/daughter etc., but recognising you are a carer means you are not alone.
There are estimated to be around 62,000 unwaged carers in Manchester. If you care for someone, there is help and support available.
