Recognising yourself as a carer is the very first step to getting the support you may be eligible for.  

Caring is tough work and we so easily forget about our own wellbeing.  Read additional helpful information on WBC's Support for carers webpage.

Carers must recognise that they have needs as well as the person they care for.

Young Carers  Young carers are children and young people under 18 years old who provide unpaid care to a family member who is physically or mentally ill, disabled or misuses substances.  The tasks and level of caring undertaken by young carers can vary according to the nature of the illness or disability, the level and frequency of need for care and the structure of the family as a whole.
