For the last two months, we’ve started a new feature on social media. Every Wednesday we’ve posted a question we often hear from carers, along with the answer and some resources on where you can find more information. Here’s a roundup of your carer questions – answered:
1. Should I tell my GP surgery I’m a carer?
To find more information about registering as a carer at your GP surgery, read more here.
2. Can I get support for my child if they are a carer?
Our dedicated Young Carer website here has information and advice around referrals, support and more for parents and children aged 5 – 16. For 16+, go to our Young Adult Carer website, YACbook.co.uk here.
3. Where do I start if I’m new to caring?
4. How can I prepare for an emergency as a carer?
Find more about the Carers Emergency card here.
