A carer is someone of any age who provides unpaid support to family or friends who could not manage without this help. This could be caring for a relative, partner or friend who is ill, frail, disabled, has a mental health issue or substance misuse problems. Carers may even be juggling paid work with their unpaid caring responsibilities at home. The term carer should not be confused with a care worker, or care assistant, who receives payment for looking after someone.

In this event you will hear some short, engaging stories from unpaid carers telling you their own stories’ including Welsh television and radio broadcaster Beti George. She presented The Dreaded Disease – David’s Story on BBC Radio Wales.

Beti will be joined by Bethan Grimes who found herself to be an unpaid carer for her husband after a violent unprovoked attack on his way home and you will also hear from Young Carer Jayde (Storyhouse Young Leaders).

Cheshire and Warrington Carers Trust will be present and will provide some key information about how as a charity they are supporting unpaid carers today.

Chaired by Dr Caroline Mogan – Researcher @livuni & @nihr @cwpnhs in palliative care, mental health & dementia.
