Helping carers to continue caring and have a life of their own
A carer is someone who helps another person in their day to day life. This is usually a relative or friend. It is not the same as someone who provides care professionally or through a voluntary organisation.
There are 6.5 million carers in the UK. This is one in 10 of the population. In North Lincolnshire there are over 19,000 carers which equates to 11 per cent of the population.
