I’m not a Carer - its’ just what I do!

Do you look after a family member or friend who needs help as a result of disability, physical or mental illness, ageing or substance misuse?

If so, you are a carer!

Being an unpaid carer can affect your own health and lead to social isolation.

If nobody knows you are a Carer it will be harder to get the support you need.

Let your GP practice know that you’re a carer so they can support you better.

Northamptonshire Carers provides information and advice, and all kinds of free services which could help you.
