Looking after family or friends

If you look after a family member, a partner, or friends in need of help because they are ill, frail, struggle with mental health or substance abuse, or have a disability, then you are considered to be a carer. The care you provide is unpaid. If your child has an additional need or disability and requires extra support, you are a parent carer.

If you are at risk of abuse or neglect, or you suspect someone else is, report it now.
