Family and friends provide vital support to individuals, who access our services, and we recognise that this role can be demanding, difficult and isolating.

We believe that working in partnership with service users and carers is fundamental to delivering high quality care. As well as providing care and treatment to the person you care for, we are here to support you. If you have a problem or you are worried about something, please talk to a member of staff.

You may be a child or young person (under 18) supporting a parent, brother, sister or grandparent – you are also a young carer.

You may be a parent, sister, brother, grandparent or friend – you are also a carer.

You may need emotional support, which could be talking with someone about the things that worry you, or you may need support with the practical things, such as being given information, attending care meetings, or support to access community organisations.

We’ve put together some information to help you in getting the information and support you may need in providing care.

The CNWL Recovery College provides courses for people who use our services, their carers and our staff. Find out more about what the college offers:
