All Age Carers
A carer is someone who helps another person, usually a friend or relative, in their day-to-day life. It’s estimated that, in the UK, three in five people will become carers at some point in their lives, with the number of carers expected to increase by up to 60% over the next 30 years.
This module looks at the characteristics that define a carer, including the roles of both young and adult carers. We demonstrate how to identify somebody who might be a carer and how you can help them to find support.

Understanding of what constitutes a carer
The types of carer groups
