Along with other voluntary organisations we work in partnership with the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC), NHS England and Public Health England (PHE).

Back in 2011, Carers UK and Nutricia Advanced Medical Nutrition launched a ground-breaking partnership aimed at improving the health of carers and the people that they care for through a variety of communications channels. Both partners wanted to harness their mutual expertise to provide critical nutritional support to carers, though information resources, training, social media days and website information.

"Nutricia Advanced Medical Nutrition has worked with Carers UK for over seven years and we are delighted to continue this valuable partnership, supporting the work that they do to ensure that carers get all the information and advice they need around nutritional care for both themselves and their loved ones."We are now in our seventh year of partnership, and the partnership has not only gone from strength to strength, but also evolved in a number of ways. For example, Nutricia has sponsored some of our flagship activities including Carers Week and Carers Right Day – helping us to raise awareness and disseminate information amongst carers across the UK. Nutricia has also become a member of Employers for Carers, an innovative service for employers supported by Carers UK, which has allowed Nutricia to embed best practice & practical support for its own staff who are carers.
