Understanding Unpaid Caring
If you look after a loved one, you may be a carer without realising it! Come along to our talk and hear about the support available to you.
About this event.
An unpaid adult carer is anyone looking after another adult who has difficulties supporting themselves in everyday life. It may be a relative, a partner, a friend, even a neighbour.
It can be demanding for them personally and may affect their wellbeing, relationships and finances. Many carers are seldom aware of their status and the support available to them. At Carers Network, we aim to ensure that no carer is left to cope alone.
In this talk, we will discuss the topic of unpaid adult caring in detail. We will explain how to register as a carer, what is a Carers Assessment, and who can claim the Carers Allowance.
We will also look into how you, if not a carer yourself, can help someone who is, by signposting the relevant services to them, or become one of our volunteers.
