Get information about managing the changes to your life when your caring role comes to an end.

Caring for someone who is in a care home

Find out more about caring for someone who is in a care home.

Coping with grief when the person you care for dies

We have information about organisations that can help you cope with grief.

Check you are claiming the right benefits

Your benefits might change if you are no longer a carer, or don't spend as much time caring as you did.

We have more information about money and benefits and your local carer service may have someone you can talk to about your situation.  You could also use our online benefits calculator (supplied by Turn2us) or get in touch with Citizen's Advice.

Getting back to work

If you are ready for a new challenge you could consider getting into work, studying and training, or volunteering.

Contact your local carer service

Even though you are no longer a carer your local carer service may be able to offer you support to help you or a group for former carers.
