Carers and Social Care

We offer a range of leaflets and guides specifically for carers of people with M.E. and also consider just how fundamental the role of carer can be.

We explain how you can apply for financial assistance with carers allowance and through social care from your local authority. And we provide a helpful template that the person you care for can complete to help you understand their needs.

Please note these are downloads. You can read them on-screen and save to your computer, phone or other device and can attach them to any email you might need to send. But you will need access to a printer if you wish them printed.
