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%).
