What is a Parent Carer?
Parent Carers are Parents who provide care and support to a child under 18 who is ill, has a disability or any additional needs.
Perhaps you don’t think of yourself as a ‘Carer’?
You may see yourself as the mother, father, husband, wife, son, daughter or friend of someone who needs care, simply trying to do your best for someone you love, or perhaps doing what no-one else can or will do.
Herefordshire Carers Support provide advice, information, training, emotional and practical support for Carers of all ages; children, parents and older people who care for someone with a long term health condition or illness.
Everyone needs help and back-up at some point. If you’re not sure what kind of support you need or whether you need support at all, please get in touch.
