Additional Information

Carers Information

You are a carer if you provide a substantial amount of care on a regular basis to a family member, friend or neighbour who has any illness or disability or is frail due to being older; and who could not manage without your help.

You could be:

  • A young person under 18 looking after a parent/brother/sister;
  • Looking after a relative with a mental illness or physical disability;
  • The parent of a child with special needs;
  • A friend or relative looking after an older person

Carer's Support and Assessment Needs

Carers who provide substantial support on a regular basis to a family member, friend or neighbour who has any illness, disability or is frail due to being older are eligible to have an assessment of their support needs as a carer. 

The carer assessment gives you an opportunity to talk about the support and care you provide; how this affects your physical and emotional health and family life; any concerns, worries or difficulties you have; and the supports you need to continue caring. 

The South Eastern Trust Carer Support Service is a central point of contact for Carers who care for someone living in the Trust area. The service provides information and advice to carers, as well as highlighting relevant agencies and teams for on-going support. They also offer a range of free activities for carers and this is available to any carer living in the South Eastern Trust area
