Detail

Carers are people who, without payment, provide help and support to a family member or a friend who may not be able to manage without this help because of frailty, illness or disability. Carers can be adults caring for other adults, parents caring for ill or disabled children or young people who care for another family member and are a vital part of the DHSSPS’s vision of providing support for people to live more independent lives and helping people remain in their own homes and live independently for longer.
