A carer is anyone, including children and adults, who looks after a family member, partner or friend who needs help because of their illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction, and cannot cope without their support.
Caring Together are proud to support more than 12,000 carers and their families every year, but there are an estimated 178,000 carers living in our region.
Many people who look after a family member or friend can feel very isolated. It is good to know people are there to give advice and to be able to talk to other people who have very similar experiences.
If you are looking after a family member or friend, being able to take a break is very important. Caring Together helps to give carers breaks.
“You are the first person I have spoken to as a carer for my wife, that understands how I am feeling, thank you.”
Caring Together have produced a helpful leaflet on looking after someone in Cambridgeshire or Peterborough, which can be downloaded.
