Do you look after someone who would struggle to cope without your support?
If you this sounds like you, you may be a carer. You may not see yourself as one, but if you are supporting a relative or friend of any age who has a learning disability, mental health issues, a history of substance misuse, a serious health condition, is physically disabled, or is elderly and frail, then you are a carer. A carer can be young or old – a child or young person under 18 can be a carer. A carer might have support needs of their own, and does not necessarily live with, or even close to, the person they care for. If you are caring for someone else, you may be particularly concerned about the COVID-19 outbreak, and how it might affect you and the person you care for.
