This week is National Carers Week. There are over 6 million carers in the UK, 1 in every 8 of the working population, providing essential support to a relative, partner or friend in need. Many people are carers without even knowing it and many are unaware of the help that’s available.
The Charity for Civil Servants has advice, support and information for carers, many of whom may experience tensions in relationships with family and friends due to their caring responsibilities.
If you’re not sure you’re a carer and would like to know more about what help is out there for you, why not take the Charity’s simple questionnaire.
For further information and advice from The Charity for Civil Servants about any problems you might have, take a look at their website www.foryoubyyou.org.ukor call to speak to an Advisor in confidence on Freephone 0800 056 2424.
