Who is a family carer?
A family carer has personal experience of caring for a family member who has a learning disability, even if that individual has moved away from home. A family carer is a person who is not paid to have a personal, continuous relationship with a person with a learning disability. If you are a family carer this website could be useful to you to find out where local groups are in your area, and for information resources.
A learning disability is "A reduced ability to understand new or complex information or to learn new skills; and a reduced ability to cope independently which started before adulthood, with a lasting effect on development." Department of Health
