Support for carers

You are a carer if you care for a partner, relative or friend who is in need of help because they are ill, frail or have a disability and this care is provided without payment (other than Carers Allowance) or a contract. Essex County Council provides information for:

Adult Carers 
Carers over 18 years of age who care for someone who is also over 18 years of age.

Young Carers 
Carers who are under 18 years of age.
