Your time, skills and experience can help us make sure no one has to care alone

We have a dedicated team of volunteers working across the UK to raise awareness of caring and Carers UK, campaign for improved carers’ rights, fundraise for our work and connect carers with the information and support they need. 

As a volunteer, we will support you to use your skills to help make life better for carers. Along the way you’ll also develop new skills and make new friends.  

This short video features some of our inspiring volunteers talking about what they get out of volunteering with Carers UK.
