If you are a carer it can sometimes be difficult to know where to look for support or advice. The NHS Choices website has lots of helpful information and articles dedicated to those who care for others on its Care and Support pages.

You can also contact the Carers Direct helpline on 0300 123 1053 if you need help with your caring role and want to talk to someone about what options are available to you. The helpline is open Monday to Friday from 9am-8pm and on weekends from 11am-4pm. The helpline is closed on Bank Holidays.
