Caring for Your Family

Support for Carers

Being a carer means you are regularly caring, without being paid, for someone who has an illness, health condition or disability. This person could not manage without your help.

They could be a friend, family member or neighbour.

If you are a carer, you may be able to get support from Bradford Council.

This could be additional support for the person you care for. Or it could be support for you.

For example it could give you a short break from your responsibilities.

If you contact the Council, they will carry out a carer’s assessment.

As a carer, you may also be able to claim several welfare benefits e.g. Carers Allowance.

You can get more advice on being a carer and how to get help.

Also, you can join a NHS Carers Hub, for support and advice.
