A carer spends a lot of time providing unpaid support to family or friends. This could be caring for a relative, partner or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or drug and alcohol related problems.
Telford & Wrekin Council is committed to supporting carers. We recognise that most care in the community takes place through family, friends and neighbours and is largely unpaid.
