Find out how we can support you in your caring role.
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. We have set ourselves three core goals to ensure carers are better valued:
- to create a society that requires carers to be treated equally in all aspects of their lives
- to connect carers so that no one has to care alone
- to halve the time it takes for carers to recognise themselves as carers and get the support they need.
