Am I a Carer?

Download

To find out if you are a Carer can you answer yes to any of the below:

  •  I offer emotional support to someone
  • I offer physical support to someone
  • I sort out medication for someone including collecting prescriptions
  • I cook and clean for someone
  • I pop in to check someone is ok
  • I take someone to appointments
  • I support someone who has an illness or disability to live independently
  • I support with daily care needs
  • I help with emotional needs and provide support

Whatever you do for someone else, means they are reliant on the support which you give them. 

If you provide unpaid support to a relative, partner or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental ill-health or substance misuse problems, you are a Carer. 

We understand that supporting someone can at times put pressure on your physical, emotional health and wellbeing at times. But we want to reassure you that there is a wide range of support available to you from Gloucestershire Carers Hub. 

Gloucestershire Carers’ Hub can offer free support to Carers who are over the age of 18, including Parent Carers either living or supporting someone in Gloucestershire. 

Our service is free as part of the NHS and Gloucestershire County Council. In the last census (2011) there were approximately 63,000 carers in Gloucestershire. 

ANYONE can self-refer, and ANYONE can refer someone else (with consent)

ANYONE can self-refer, and ANYONE can refer someone else

To refer call 0300 111 9000 or refer online

Support for young Carers is provided by Gloucestershire Young Carers
