About Us

Forward Carers is a West Midlands based carer support service, here to make a real difference to the lives of people caring for an elderly frail, sick or disabled family member. Our aim is simple – to improve the physical and mental wellbeing of carers, young and old, including parent carers, so that families stay healthier and happier together, for longer.

We’ve listened to what carers like you have told us they wanted to know and the things that help them in their role. On this website, you will find useful information on how to look after yourself and manage your caring role, with advice and tips designed with carers across the West Midlands in mind. As well as this, you can find out about all of the support and services available in your area by going to the Local Services section of the website.
