Building support for young and adult Carers within Communities, services and organisations. We work with Carers and other to raise awareness, recognition and support for young and adult carers within communities and public services such as schools, health, social services and housing as well as other charities and among employers.
Opportunities for young and adult carers to have a voice and influence on issues that matter to them in local and national forums / steering groups / local and regional strategic boards. We communicate carers’ views back to local and national policy makers and decision makers. We also carry out consultations and feedback suggestions for improving services for carers, and play an active part in promoting carers’ rights. It is a key part of our role to help build awareness about carers, their role, and their needs – both locally and nationally.
We work with a number of local and national voluntary organisations to keep in touch and share information about the services that are available. We are a Network Partner of the Carers Trust, a charity that supports a network of local carers support organisations.
Our support is FREE! We don’t charge a membership fee and rely on funding from a range of generous donors, funders and public sector contracts to share our resources freely with carers and their families.
