How to be involved in decisions about someone’s care and finances, whether they have mental capacity or not.
An assessment looks at what support you need in your role as carer and how we can help you.
There are a range of benefits, tax credits and other financial support that you could receive as a carer, including carer's allowance.
The Mental Capacity Act (MCA) protects a person's money, health and welfare, if they can't make all their own decisions.
DoLS provides legal protection for vulnerable people in hospital or a care home.
As a carer, it's important to get support from other carers, organisations or short break services.
