Did you know that 1 in 10 people in Northamptonshire regularly care for someone?
Are you one of them?
You may not describe yourself as a carer; it’s just what you do as a husband, wife, partner, relative or friend. You may be providing physical, emotional or practical support or helping someone to get out and about. You can be of any age and come from any background or community.
If you care on a regular basis for a parent, child, friend, neighbour or other relative who may be physically or mentally ill, has a disability, is elderly or has problems with drugs or alcohol, then you are a carer and this website is for you.
