Blackpool Carers Centre is a local, independent charity supporting carers from the age of 5 years up to 105!
Caring for a loved one due to disability, illness, mental ill health or substance misuse can be a demanding role and one that many feel unprepared to take on. Being a carer is something that can happen to any one of us at any time.
