A carers assessment is a chance to discuss your needs with your local council. The assessment is free and your local council will use it to decide what support to give you.
Don't be put off by the word 'assessment'. It is not a test about how good you are at caring. It is to work out what can be done to make life easier for you.
If your circumstances change you can ask for your assessment to be done again..You can find out more at HERE.
