We give expert advice, information and support 

When you're caring, getting the right information at the right time can make all the difference. 

If you have a question about caring or just need more support, our Helpline, email advice service, and online information are here to help. 


We connect carers so no one has to care alone

Every day 6,000 people become carers. If you're new to caring, we want to make sure you get the right support from the start. 

Our forum offers a supportive online community, at any time of day or night. Our virtual meetups connect carers to people who understand. And thanks to our amazing volunteers, we're reaching carers in local communities across the UK.  


We campaign together for lasting change

We're at the forefront of the carers’ movement, bringing carers together to have a voice and deliver lasting change. 

We’ll keep campaigning until we can all look after loved ones without putting our own lives on hold. 


We find new ways to reach and support carers

By listening to carers’ experiences, we’ve developed expertise and understanding that helps us find better ways to support carers. 

We share our insights with local authorities, employers and other organisations, making the most of technology to help solve the problems that carers face.  


In 2021, we created an ambitious direction of travel for the next five years, taking us up to our 60th anniversary. Find out how we’re achieving our vision in our latest annual report.
