If you help to look after a partner, a child, relative, neighbour or friend who couldn’t manage without your help due to frailty, a disability, illness, or addiction – you’re a carer.
Providing care for someone can be rewarding and satisfying, however, it can also affect other areas of your life such as your job, finances, relationships, family life and your own mental health.
We know there are many unpaid / family carers in Dollar, many of whom don’t seek support but could do with some!
We have developed links with our local Carers Centre and have started to develop a good selection of information and resources for carers in the Hive. If you need help, you’re not alone, just contact us and we will do our best to support you.
