Caring for Carers is often a neglected area in our society. There are so many ways we can find ourselves in a caring role. Caring can be a professional choice or we can take on the role because of life's unexpected circumstances and can be a combination of both. We can be working in the community (paid or voluntary), working in the ever-growing homeless sector which has become incredibly demanding due to lack of funding, and so on. We can be caring for children, caring for loved ones due to ill health or as a result of the inevitable process of growing old, we can be trying to help someone for specific reasons (someone who is suicidal perhaps), or perhaps caring for loved ones who have dependency issues (learned helplessness/addictions perhaps).
