We want to help you look after yourself, care safely, and to plan care for the people you support, in the event of you becoming unwell. We are here to make sure that no one has to care alone.

ARE YOU

A CARER?

A Carer is anyone who cares, unpaid, for a friend or family member who due to illness, disability, a mental health concern or an addiction, cannot cope without their support.

 

Anyone could be a Carer – a 15-year-old girl looking after a parent with alcohol dependency, a 40-year-old man caring for his partner who has terminal cancer, or an 80-year-old woman looking after her husband who has Alzheimer’s disease.

  • There are around seven million Carers in the UK  – that is one in ten people. This is rising.

  • Three in five people will be Carers at some point in their lives in the UK. 

  • Out of the UK’s Carers, 42% of Carers are men and 58% are women.  

  • The economic value of the contribution made by Carers in the UK is £132bn a year.

  • By 2030, the number of Carers will increase by 3.4 million (around 60%).
