Here to help...
Do you look after an adult who is ill, disabled or frail and cannot manage without your help? If so, you are a carer.
The person you care for may be a relative or friend and may not even live with you...
You are a carer.
The Worcestershire Carers Charter
The purpose of this charter is to describe what carers can expect when accessing support from key services in the county. The charter is a statement of commitment from these key services, download the Carers Charter.
The strategy is strongly based on achievement of outcomes that local carers have identified as important, and evaluation of the strategy will be largely based on assessment against these, download the Worcestershire Carers Strategy.
