Are You A Carer? Would you be willing to complete a survey to improve how Lincolnshire County Council can support you?
If you’re unsure about whether you are a carer this description from NHS England might help:
‘A carer is anyone, including children and adults who looks after a family member, partner or friend who needs help because of their illness, frailty, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction and cannot cope without their support. The care they give is unpaid.’
Lincolnshire County Council funds support that promote carers’ wellbeing, quality of life and ability to continue the caring role. The council would like to hear from you so they can make sure future services meet your needs as a carer.
The survey will take five to 10 minutes to complete and will ask you which services you have accessed and how helpful you found the support. If you are a carer and have not accessed support, you can still give your views on how carers can best be supported.

The closing date is the 23rd April, 2021.
Carers FIRST delivers the Lincolnshire Carers Service in partnership with the Lincolnshire County Council’s Customer Service Centre. Together they provide a wide range of services to carers across the county.
The information below from Mind, the organisation promoting better mental health, explains how to cope when supporting someone else, giving practical suggestions for what you can do and where you can go for support.
