What is a Carer?
A carer helps another person in their day to day life who could not manage without that support.
Training for carers
Carer Support Wiltshire coordinates a training network working together to deliver training to carers.
A Young Carer is a child or young person (aged from 5 to 25) whose life is affected by caring for at least one family member.
If your child requires more care from you than other children of the same age would then you are probably a parent carer.
