Carer recognition tool
We have developed four simple questions to help you recognise if you are a carer.
1. Do you look after someone? (Remember a carer is not paid or a formal volunteer)
If you answered no to question 1, you are not a carer.
If you answered yes to question 1, please answer the following three questions.
2. Are you looking after yourself?
3. Do you have support from family or friends in your caring role?
4. Do you have all the help and support you need?
If you answered yes to all of questions 2-4 please use our website to find out what information and self-help is available to you.
If you answered no to any of questions 2-4 please contact us to request an assessment of your needs.
