A carer looks after a loved one who needs help with daily living. They don't do this as a paid job. It is important to remember that carers have rights too, including young carers. These pages list links to where you can get lots of information and advice:
- Young Carers
- Power of Attorney and Court of Protection
- Carers Advocacy: Frequently Asked Questions
- Carers' Rights
