  • Mission statement

    Together with our Network Partners, we provide support, information, advice and services for the millions of people caring at home for a family member or friend.

    Our Network Partners reach unpaid carers of all ages and with a range of responsibilities, in their local communities. From helping carers to access local services, to making their views heard by opinion formers and professionals, together we help carers to connect with everyone and everything that can make a difference to their lives.

    With carers’ needs, choices and voices at the heart of everything we do, we strive to ensure that the enormous contribution they make to society and to those they care for is fully recognised, appreciated and valued.
