2 The definition of an unpaid carer is: “ Carers provide unpaid care to family members, other relatives, partners, friends and neighbours of any age affected by physical or mental illness, disability, frailty or substance use. Some carers care intensively or are lifelong carers. Others care for shorter periods. The carer does not need to be living with cared for person to be a carer” (Caring Together: The Carers Strategy for Scotland, )
