Do you care for a family member or a friend on a voluntary basis? Text CARER to 87007 for free confidential information, advice and support from the Wirral Carers Health and Wellbeing Service.
A carer is anyone, including children and adults who looks after a family member, partner or friend who needs help because of their illness, frailty, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction and cannot cope without their support. The care they give is unpaid.
There is a lot of support available locally; both from your GP surgery and also from various organisations on the Wirral. Please don’t hesitate to email to find out what is available to you in your local area.
It is important that you access any help or support you need, to ensure your own wellbeing as well as that of the person you care for.
For more information about this service please contact the
Carers Helpline 0151 670 0777 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
