Carers UK makes life better for carers.

Caring will affect us all at some point in our lives. We'll be here for you when that happens. With your help, we can be there for the 6,000 people who start looking after someone each day.

Phone-iconWe give expert advice, information and support.

Caring can be extremely complicated. The maze of rights and entitlements can be complicated. Filling in paperwork can be complicated. Getting a break can be complicated. Our feelings about caring can certainly be complicated.

We're here to make sure that no matter how complicated your query or your experience, you don't have to care alone. 

Our expert telephone advice and support service is here if you want to talk about caring. If you're looking for answers, our online information and support is the best place to start.


COnnect-iconWe connect carers so no-one has to care alone.

Every day 6,000 people become carers. It can be bewildering if you don't know where to turn for help and support.

Through our carers' groups and volunteers we're reaching out in local communities throughout the UK and online.

If you're new to caring, we want to make sure you get the right support from the start.


Campaign-icon We campaign together for lasting change.

We're at the forefront of the carers’ movement, bringing carers together to have a voice and deliver lasting change.

We’ll keep campaigning until we can all look after loved ones without putting our own lives on hold.


Innovate-iconWe innovate to find new ways to reach and support carers.

Our expertise and insight drawn from carers’ experiences helps us find better ways to support carers.

We work with local authorities and other organisations to improve services for carers throughout the UK.
