A carer's assessment could help you if you look after a relative, disabled child or friend and caring has a major impact on your life.

The aim of a carer assessment is to identify the carer’s ability to provide both short and long term care. Although carers may not be entitled to specific services in their own right, the outcome of the carer assessment may mean an increase in the community care services provided for the ‘cared-for’ person.

An assessment can be carried out in person or over the phone, or a self-assessment can be completed online.
