There’s lots of ways to get involved and help us achieve our mission to create Carer Friendly Communities.
By volunteering, fundraising, donating or supporting us, you help us to improve Carer wellbeing, bring Carers and families together to reduce isolation and train Carers to get connected online. If you’re a Carer and you’d like to have your voice heard by health professionals, social care and other services, click the button below.
As a not-for-profit, we rely on funding to achieve our mission to create Carer Friendly Communities, places where Carers can thrive. Your gifts will support our Carer Friendly Online Community, including bringing isolated Carers together for our Chill & Chat sessions, ‘Get Online’ training, and online socials.
How you can help
We have a wide range of volunteering opportunities suitable for all ages, interests, and skillsets. Get it touch with our friendly team to find out how your skills and passion could make a real difference to the Carers in your community.
We run a range of activities, events and training for Carers, non-Carers and professionals, including Dementia and Autism Carer training sessions, wellbeing sessions for Carers and networking sessions for employers.
The sky’s the limit when it comes to raising funds to support unpaid Carers. Whether you want to join our Juggle in June annual fundraiser, arrange a bake sale, take part in your own activity or set up an In Memoriam page, we’re here to support you. Email email@example.com or click below.
We love working with corporates who care – get in touch to start the conversation about how together we can make life better for unpaid Carers, raise awareness of your organisation, meet your CSR goals, and celebrate our joint impact.
