Who are Carers?

A Carer is someone who provides unpaid support to a family member, partner, child, friend or neighbour who may be ill, frail, elderly, have a disability or long-term health issue or have mental health issues.

Carers do not necessarily live in the same home as the person they care for and may themselves be unwell, have a disability or long-term illness.

How can we help you?

If you look after someone who couldn’t manage without your help please get in touch. Our friendly team can offer emotional support, one-to-one advice and help with accessing the information and services that are relevant to you. We also offer complementary therapies, support groups, training opportunities and much more.

We aim to open up possibilities so that you can continue your caring responsibilities but also to take stock.  Each Carer is individual and different, what helps one person may not help another but we will help you to explore ideas and think about what might help you.

Herefordshire Carers Support

Herefordshire Carers Support exists to ensure that carers are universally recognised as fundamental to the communities in which they live and to ensure that there is a balance between their caring responsibilities and their lives outside their caring role. Who is a Carer? A carer doesn’t have to be someone who lives with the person they care for or be related to them. If you care for them, then you are a carer. If you are under the age of 18 and you help care for someone then the Young Carers Support will help you. There is a support network for parents and carers for children with additional needs which provides information and support. We also run a Carers Forum.
