Carers UK is here to make life better for carers. Looking after someone can be tough, but you’re not on your own. We’ve been here for 50 years, driven by carers raising their voices together to call for change and seek recognition and support.
We give expert advice, information and support that is tailored to your situation, through the Carers UK Adviceline and our website. We connect carers so no one has to care alone, through our warm and welcoming online community and our network of members and volunteers. We’re at the forefront of the carers movement, bringing carers together to campaign for lasting change. And we innovate to find new ways to help you manage at home, work or wherever you are.
We’re the UK’s only national membership charity for carers, and believe that no one should have to care alone.
The Carers UK Adviceline provides expert information and advice to people looking after a loved one. Open five days a week and covering the whole of the UK, get in touch for advice on benefits and tax credits, carers’ employment rights, assessments, services and how to challenge decisions.
There is also a listening service so you can talk through your caring situation with a trained volunteer who understands what you are going through.
