Updated 13th August
This guidance is for anyone under 25 who cares for a family member who cannot cope without their support. This may be because they have a lifelong condition, illness, disability, serious injury, a mental health condition or an addiction.
Updated several sections of the guidance to reflect the most recent government advice. These sections are: ‘shielding’, ‘if you have coronavirus symptoms’ and ‘wearing a face covering if you have to go out’.
Added 2 new sections: ‘if transmission of coronavirus increases’ and ‘local restrictions’. Replaced ‘easy read’ with updated version.
