About us

Overview


Our vision

A community where carers of today and tomorrow are fully recognised, valued, supported and have what they need to stay well, in control and feel connected.


Our mission

To provide trusted information, advice and support to carers of all ages enabling them to maintain or improve their health and wellbeing as well as take control of their caring role and stay connected with others. In addition, we work with our wider community to improve recognition and support for unpaid carers.


Our goals

Keeping carers well

Carers often put their own health and wellbeing second. We enable carers to maintain and improve their physical and mental health and emotional wellbeing, helping them to keep on caring for as long as they want to.


Keeping carers connected

Caring can be isolating and lonely. We encourage carers to have a life of their own and stay connected with others. We work to empower family and friends to support carers close to them.


Keeping carers in control

Navigating the health and social care system, juggling work with caring responsibilities, maintaining relationships and planning for the future can all be challenging. We enable carers to stay in control and manage the impact of caring.


Creating a carer-friendly community

Three in five of us will care for someone during our lifetime and we all know someone who is caring right now. We work to educate our community to ensure that today’s carers are recognised, valued and supported and the carers of tomorrow are ready.


Here for carers

We have over 20 years’ experience of supporting carers and are leading the way for a carer-friendly community. We  strive to be sustainable for the long-term so we are here for the next generation of carers.


Our values

Honest - we are truthful and sincere in all we do for carers.

Fair - we treat everyone we work with equally and with respect.

Supportive - we provide encouragement and help to all we work with.

Empowering - we make carers stronger and more confident, especially in controlling their life and claiming their rights.

Innovative - we seek to find new and creative ways to achieve our mission.

Sustainable - we work to ensure we will always be here to support carers, by considering financial, social and environmental concerns in our decision-making.
