A carer is someone who spends a significant amount of their time providing unpaid support to a family member or friend.
Social care and health services in particular have an important role in ensuring that carers are at the heart of the social care system; and are treated as expert partners in care.
Skills for Care have a number of tools and resources to help you identify and support carers you come into contact with.
