Across the UK today 6.5 million people are Carers, supporting a loved one who is older, disabled or seriously ill.
That’s 1 in 8 adults who care, unpaid, for family and friends.
A Carer is someone who provides unpaid help and support on a regular basis to a relative, neighbour or friend who is unable to manage at home due to age, a long term health condition or disability.
If you are please let us know - we may be able to help you
There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring - see the links below that we hope you will find useful.
Lambeth Age UK supporting older people in Lambeth.
Looking for support but not sure where to go?
Feel like things are getting too much but don’t know where to turn?
We can help!
We offer services and support for relatives, friends and neighbours who have a caring role. The caring role may be because a loved one is elderly, has a disability, long term health condition, mental ill health or substance misuse.
For example, you might be speaking up for someone, going to appointments with them, or helping them to stay safe.

Information, advice and guidance on what benefits carers can get.
If you provide care and support to an adult friend or family member or a disabled child, you may be eligible for support from your local council.
Before you receive any help from your local council, you need to have a carer's assessment. As a carer you have a right to an assessment of your needs.
Although treatment on the NHS is free at the point of delivery, there may still be some costs, such as your journey to hospital. But much or all of these costs can be reclaimed, which should ease any added stress. This page explains in full detail how to claim the money you're entitled to.

If you're a carer, there are many organisations that can provide practical and financial help, as well as short breaks from caring. You can find information and advice here.
The Carers Trust has 144 carers' centres across the UK where you can find information, emotional support and training in skills such as first aid and stress reduction.
Looking after your loved ones can be tough, but you’re not on your own. Led by carers, we’re here to give you expert help & support.
