We recognise the contribution you make as a carer and we want to help you get the support and services you need to live your own life as well as care for your loved one.

Our carer awareness course will help you learn more about things that are important to you in your carer role.

You can get information about what you may be entitled to, find out about your rights as a carer and get support, information and advice.

You can access all or part of the course in any order and as often as you wish. If you would like to test your knowledge and get your 'Carer Aware' certificate you will need to complete the whole course.

A carer is anyone who cares, unpaid, for a friend or family member who, due to any illness or disability, a mental health problem or an addiction, cannot cope without their support. This course is suitable for family members, friends or anyone working alongside or supporting carers.
