During this time, it's important to know what support is available to you as a carer and those you look after.
If you are worried that you or someone you look after may be at high risk from coronavirus, NHS 111 can offer direct guidance through their online coronavirus helpline. Call 111 if your (or their) symptoms become severe, and let them know you are a carer.
The following page sets out the current government guidance as it relates to carers and offers suggestions for ways to protect yourself and those you care for: https://www.carersuk.org/help-and-advice/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-covid-19
You can find answers to some common questions in our FAQ section and see our wellbeing and keeping active and well pages for tips on looking after yourself and keeping a positive frame of mind.
