Caring for someone
Carers can get help and support too. You might not think of yourself as a carer - you may see yourself as family, as a friend or a neighbour. But if you're helping to look after someone unpaid because they need care and support, then you're a carer.
There are different ways you can be supported as a carer. You might need to take a break and take some time out to look after yourself. You may be able to get some benefits if you are a carer. There are support groups as well, and different ways to meet other carers, in person or online. If you're not sure where to start or what help is available, you could get in touch with Wandsworth Carer's Centre or find out more about the support we provide to unpaid carers:
