Caring for relatives

The Carents Room is a website designed to support people who find themselves caring for their parents. This might be during a time in their lives when they’re also caring for their children, and working too. Providing information and links to help, the website aims to reduce the burden on those having to navigate health and care systems for the first time.

If you’re caring for someone, you may be entitled to financial support. You can find out more about how the government supports carers by checking the government website.
