Categories of Carers


There are three main categories of Carers:

1) Adult Carers

Caring for another adult, often a spouse or partner but could be a parent, friend or neighbour.

2) Parent Carers

If your child requires more care from you than other children of the same age and they are likely to need you to care for them for the rest of their lives, you are probably a Parent Carer. Your child may have a physical disability, autism, a hearing impairment, learning difficulties or complex health needs.

3) Young Carers (5 to 18 years old)

Caring for or helping to care for another family member.
