A carer is someone who provides unpaid help to family or friends who could not manage without it. You could be caring for a relative, partner, or a friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has a mental health or substance misuse problem, and they may or may not live the same house as you.
If you are a carer, there are services to support you in your caring role including:
- information and advice
- a break from caring
- emotional support.
If you would like to speak to someone about the support available to you, please contact Renfrewshire Carers Centre.
