Yes, you are entitled to one, which should be updated annually. It looks at what the council can offer you to help with your caring role.
I'll get in contact with them, thank you.

When did you last have a Carers Assessment? They may be able to give you a grant to cover the cost of a course.
Erm, I'm not sure I've ever had an official carer's assessment. Would I need to contact my local council?

Maybe study for a qualification?
I wouldn't be able to afford to study, I struggle to pay bills as it is. I did go college after I left school but the subjects I studied, I'm no longer interested in. I just wish I had chosen to pursue different course subjects.

It is quite frustrati...
Thanks for sharing that information Rob. I'm not really one for online groups, etc but would be more than happy to attend if any take place face-to-face in the future. Kind regards.
I have access to support groups for carers and also mental health support. I don't really have any friends tbh, I only have 1 friend and we don't really have much in common anymore and hardly talk. I have family but they're not really supportive and can be quite overbearing at times so don't have a ...
Hi everyone, my name is Ryan and I'm a full-time carer for my mother who suffers with mental and physical health problems. I also have mental health difficulties. My mum used to be really outgoing, energetic and bubbly but now she sleeps all day and has no energy or interest in anything. She isn't v...
