Does your child have SEND? Do they require more care and support than expected of a child or young person of their age?

If the answer is yes, even if you are a parent to that person, it is extremely likely that you are a Carer, whether you were aware of it or not.

Do you realise you can register with your GP as a Carer if you are providing this support on a regular basis? If your GP surgery is aware that you are a Carer they can monitor how caring may be affecting your health or emotional well-being and signpost you to additional support. You may also be eligible for free vaccines and health checks or support with appointments.

Action for Family Carer’s has designed a universal form you can complete and give to your GP in order to register as a carer. CLICK HERE  to access the form.
