Our campaigns 

We’ve been campaigning with carers for 50 years, transforming understanding and winning critical developments in carers’ rights.  

In these challenging times, our work has never been more important as we seek to protect these rights, while pressing ahead to break new ground. Read about our latest campaigns. 


Our research 

We are able to speak with authority in our policy and campaigning work because we listen to the reality of carers’ lives, backing up their experiences with vital evidence through our research

We ensure carers’ voices reach decision-makers at the highest level, building on our research to influence and change policy.  


Sharing carers’ stories 

Working with the media helps improve understanding of how caring affects people’s lives, raising awareness and bringing about lasting change. 

But we can only continue to make a difference with your help. By sharing your caring story, you can help other carers know they are not alone and find the help they need.
