Who is a Carer?

The Kent Carers Strategy defines a Carer as “someone who in an unpaid capacity provides care or support to another person.” Anyone can become a carer at any point in their life.


Carers are entitled to:
  • Have access to information, advice and guidance
  • Have access to integrated and personalised services
  • Have a life of their own
  • Have support to stay mentally and physically well
  • Promote their financial well being.
  • Carers are supported to have a voice about services for their cared-for person and for themselves
Our Service will ensure that Carers are:
  • Helped to optimise their physical and emotional well being
  • Supported to relieve the stress of the caring role
  • Able to maintain social contacts and personal relationships
  • Assisted to enjoy separate social and community activities
  • Enabled to participate in work, leisure activities or education

Call us for more information, the support group network is being offered in partnership with KASBAH.
