Do you regularly look after someone who needs support?
Do you do this for free?
RAD has developed an information and advice service for deaf carers and carers who are supporting someone who is deaf. We can help you get the support you need and understand your rights as a carer.
Across the UK, approximately 6.5 million people are carers, supporting a loved one who is older, disabled or seriously ill.
A carer is anyone who cares, unpaid, for a friend or family member who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction cannot cope without their support.
Anyone can become a carer. Carers can be of any age.
Supporting someone regularly can be a very positive experience for you, the carer, and the person you support. Caring can also be exhausting, stressful and hard work. Although as a carer you want the best for the person you care for; you also need support.
