Carers UK is a membership charity set up and led by carers.
At some point in our lives every one of us will be involved in looking after an older relative, a sick friend or a disabled family member. Six million people in the UK are caring right now but whilst caring is part and parcel of life, without the right support the personal costs of caring can be high.
Carers UK helps carers:
They provide information and advice about all aspects of caring, influence policy through our research based on carers’ real life experiences and campaign to make life better for carers.
