In the UK there are six million people who care unpaid for an ill, frail or disabled family member or friend. These people are called carers.

They help with personal things like getting someone dressed, turning them in their sleep, helping them to the toilet, helping them move about or administering their medication. Carers also help with things like shopping, laundry, cleaning, cooking, filling in forms or managing money.


Q1: Do you provide unpaid care for a friend or family member who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction cannot cope without your support?
