Online Carer Support
As a not-for-profit here to make life better for Carers, we’ve worked with Carers and professionals to develop a range of free resources for Carers covering some of the most common issues that Carers face. You can access these free resources by registering below. We also have a range of support exclusively available for Carer Friendly Card Community Members. These are free to access when you buy a Carer Friendly Card. All proceeds from card sales help fund our Carer support.

Top tips and Toolkits
We’ve worked together with Carers and ex-Carers like you to come up solutions to a range of common situations Carers face, including health and wellbeing challenges, managing difficult conversations, setting up a Carers support group or planning for a care emergency. Our Top tips and toolkits provide useful advice and guidance from those who have been through similar situations and come out the other side. We hope you find them helpful.
What If Plan
It’s important to take some time to think about what would happen in the event you were suddenly unable to carry out your caring role. A ‘What If’ plan is a document where you can write down everything about the person you care for and their needs and preferences. In the unfortunate event that something did prevent you for being about to support your loved-one, it acts as a guide for those who step in to provide care and provides you with peace of mind.
TRAINING & EVENTS to support you
Carer Friendly Community members can access free and discounted training opportunities, webinars and Carer Friendly events.
