Being Heard is a self-advocacy guide, developed by Carers UK, to help carers navigate what can at times be a confusing system. When we’re caring, it can be hard to get our voice heard. We might not know what help to ask for, or indeed who to ask. Self-advocacy is about learning the skills to speak up for ourselves and for the person we’re caring for.


NHS England: A practical guide to healthy caring

NHS England – Practical Guide to Healthy Caring

The advice in this booklet will help if you look after a friend or family member or have any form of caring responsibilities, but it is particularly relevant for those who are about 65 years or older and are new to caring.

Caring for someone who is ill or disabled can help people live well at home and remain part of their local community, but you also have to make sure you look after your own health and wellbeing too. The advice given here provides hints and tips on how to look after your own health as well as support the person you care for.
