Are you looking after or providing support for a relative friend or neighbour? Are you being helped or supported by a relative friend or neighbour?

GP surgeries have to compile information for the government about the numbers of carers attached to the surgery so your information will help them to do this.

You can apply to carry a carers card so that if you are suddenly taken ill or have an accident the emergency services can get in touch with your contacts and take appropriate actin. Please click here to find out more.
A carer assessment helps you to think about your caring role, how it affects your life and what support you may need. It’s about you; it’s not a judgement about how capable you are as a carer. During the assessment, staff from North Yorkshire County Council will talk with you about your needs, your health, about what is important to you, and if your wellbeing is affected by an inability to meet certain outcomes.
