A carer is defined as somebody who looks after a friend, relative or neighbour
becuase they are old, are ill, have physical or learning disabilities, or because they have mental health problems.
If you are a carer you may feel that your own mental, emotional and physical health is suffering
becuase of the stress and strain of caring for someone you love. You give so much to your loved ones and to
society but all too often carers needs are forgotten about. Carers often experience health problems, financial difficulties
and discrimination because of their commitments.
