About Action for Family Carers
A family Carer is someone who, without payment, provides help and support to a partner, child, relative, friend or neighbour, who could not manage without their help. This could be due to age, physical or mental illness, addiction or disability.
Action for Family Carers is a thriving charity, which for over 25 years, has been providing information and support to Carers who have unpaid, caring responsibilities for others.
We are a Carers Trust Network Partner and Centre of Excellence and lead a group of charities delivering countywide Carer support in Essex.
We provide information, advice, advocacy, peer support, counselling and respite day care across the county, working within schools and hospitals and in a variety of community settings.
We lead a partnership of 6 charities providing high-quality countywide support for unpaid Carers.
Action for Family Carers makes a positive difference to the lives of all Carers by providing valued, high-quality support services in the times of need.
