We use the term carer to describe someone who provides unpaid care and support for a partner, relative or friend who has a disability, illness, mental health or memory loss. The person who is cared for would not be able to manage day to day living without this care and support. In Blackpool there are more than 16,000 people who provide unpaid care for another person.

More information is available on the Blackpool Council website page Caring for Someone.

If you are a carer you are entitled to a carers assessment. There is no charge for a carers assessment and you can request an assessment using the online referral form or telephone us.

Blackpool Council provide a range of Social Care services for children and particularly, children with disabilities.

If you would like to request help for a child contact us on 01253 477299
