Carers UK

< Back to directory


The UK’s only national membership charity for carers. They provide advice, information and support, connect carers so no one has to care alone and campaign for lasting change.

They offer an expert telephone helpline for all carers based in the UK and publish information and factsheets on topics including benefits, community care issues and details of local support groups.
They also work hard to bring carers’ issues to the attention of government and policymakers.


Online Community: Our warm and welcoming online community is a place where you can share what’s on your mind, day and night. You can talk about real issues with people who understand and who can support you through everything caring has to throw at you.
