Recognising carers in Surrey

Surrey’s 115,000 unpaid, family carers have been through a lot. Covid-19 and lockdown has put huge additional pressures on them, mentally, physically and emotionally – making an already difficult role even harder.

Carers can be caring for a huge variety of reasons – as parents, spouses, siblings and also as wider family and friends. You can be caring for someone all their life, or only just become, or indeed realise that you are a carer.

Support for unpaid carers is available all year round. Find out more on the Surrey County Council website: https://www.surreycc.gov.uk/social-care-and-health/adults/looking-after-someone/your-role-as-a-carer
