A 'carer' is someone who looks after or supports a family member, partner, close friend or neighbour, who could not manage without help. This may be because of disability, learning disability, illness, frailty, sensory impairment, mental health need or substance use.
(A 'careworker' is not an 'informal carer', and is employed and receives a salary for the job they do)
