Carers are people whose lives are affected by caring for a loved one at home or in the community. Although caring can be deeply rewarding it can also be time consuming and emotionally and physically tiring. We support carers living in Solihull or whose cared for live in the borough. Solihull has adopted the following definition for carers of all ages:
“Someone of any age who provides support to family or friends who could not manage without this help. this could be caring for a relative, partner or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health needs or substance misuse problems”

Support with finances
Jointly is an app that makes caring for someone a little easier, less stressful and a lot more organised by making communication and coordination between those who share the care as easy as a text message.
