Sooner or later, most of us will face the challenge of caring for family and friends who are older, disabled or seriously ill. But it’s rarely in the plan.
Carers UK is the national membership charity for the 6.5 million people in the UK who are unpaid carers. As an organisation we provide expert advice and information for carers, campaign for greater recognition and support for carers, and use our experience and expertise to help other organisations do more for carers.
Our vision is of a society that respects, values and supports carers.
We give expert advice, information and support; connect carers so no-one has to care alone; campaign together for lasting change; and we innovate to find new ways to reach and support carers.
