If you are a carer for someone please let us know – we may be able to help you
A carer is anyone, including children and adults who looks after a family member, partner or friend who needs help because of their illness, frailty, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction and cannot cope without their support. The care they give is unpaid.
Do you care for a family member or a friend on a voluntary basis? Text CARER to 87007 for free confidential information, advice and support from the Wirral Carers Health and Wellbeing Service.
There is a wealth of information on https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/social-care-and-support-guide/support-and-benefits-for-carers/ about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you’re a carer is important so they understand and can support you.
- Taking a break
Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it’s essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.
- Housing and carers
