Carers with Disabilities
Studies have shown that caring can have a direct and significant impact on the carer’s health; in particular carers are more likely to suffer from poor sleep, back problems, stress related illnesses and depression. Carers often put their own health as a low priority, due to their caring role.
If you have your own health problems but still care for someone else you shouldn't have to suffer due to your caring role. All carers can benefit from the support we offer, and shouldn't have any barriers from gaining access to our support.
We use translation support from the organisation DA Languages, based in Old Trafford, which provide BSL translation.
