Illness, disability, old age; there are many reasons why 3 in 5 of us will look after a loved one and become carers at some point in our lives.

A carer is anyone who cares, unpaid, for a family member or friend who could not always manage without their support. They might look after someone with a physical disability, long term health condition, mental health issue or a problem with substance misuse.

Carer Support Wiltshire supports all carers in Wiltshire.

If you look after someone, register with us today for information and support that could make things a little easier.
