n-compass Delivers Carlisle Carers  

What is a Carer? 
A Carer is someone who provides unpaid care, for a few hours a day or round the clock, to a friend
or relative who could not manage without their support.  The care they give may be due to
age, illness, disability, mental health problems, or substance misuse. 
Carers’ lives are often complex - many have other commitments as well as their caring role, such as
work or school, and sometimes they live with the person they care for or sometimes they call in to
help. These situations can create challenges which may impact on Carers’ financial or educational
opportunities, as well as their own health and wellbeing. 
Carers sometimes do not realise they are a ‘Carer’ and feel they are simply being kind, by looking
after a family member or friend.   Carers provide huge benefits to the person they care for, as well as
wider benefits to the NHS, Social workers and society as a whole, by providing a free, essential
support service. 
What we do 
We provide specialist support for Carers, to enhance their health and wellbeing, and enable them to
continue in their role for as long as they chose.  
Where we work 
Carlisle Carers provides a range of services to support and enhance the lives of the 12,000 unpaid
carers of all ages throughout the city and the north east of Cumbria.
