Are you a carer?

Many of us will look after an elderly relative, sick partner or disabled family member at some point in our lives. Often people do not think of themselves as carers at all but see what they are doing as part of their role as, for example, mother, husband, wife, son or friend.

Anyone who helps with the care needs of a friend or relative who is unable to live independently without their help, without pay for their services, is a carer.

​Carers requiring support, information or advice on vaccine eligibility should contact Shropshire Carers Team:
