Carers UK

As the UK's only national membership charity for carers, Carers UK is both a supportive community and a movement for change.

Looking after someone can be a rewarding experience but it can also be lonely and bewildering. At these times, you need people around you who really understand caring.

That's where we come in. We help each other by sharing experiences and offering support.

  • giving expert advice, information and support
  • connecting carers so no-one has to care alone
  • campaigning together for lasting change
  • innovating to find new ways to reach and support carers
