Who to contact
A carer is anyone who cares, unpaid, for a family member of friend over the age of 18 years who due to illness, disability, a mental health condition or addiction cannot manage to live independently without your support. Carers IW have been jointly commissioned by the council and the Clinical Commissioning Group to provide a variety of different support to carers living on the island. Carers IW will also be able to advise you if you may be eligible for services from the council. For more information please click on the Carers IW tab above.
