We are want to identify carers, especially those people who may be caring without help or support.

We know that carers are often “hidden” looking after a family member or helping a friend or neighbour with day to day tasks and may not see themselves as a carer. Caring for someone is an important and valuable role in the community, which is often a 24 hour job that can be very demanding and isolating for the carer.

Carers should receive appropriate support by way of access to accurate information on a range of topics such as entitlement to benefits, respite care and, not least, a listening ear when things get too much.

South Lakes Carers are a local charity based in Kendal, they are here to help and if you would like to self refer please call
