A carer is someone who, without payment, provides help and support to a partner, child, relative, friend or neighbour, who could not manage without their help. This could be due to age, physical or mental illness, addiction or disability.

Many carers do not recognise themselves as a 'carer', just someone trying to cope as best they can while helping to look after their husband, wife, child, parent or friend.
