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 otherwise. This could be due to age, physical or mental illness, addiction or disability.
Action for Family Carers is an Essex 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 we hold PQASSO level 3, NCVO's highest quality mark for charity management and governance.
We provide information, advice, befriending, counselling and respite day care across the county. We also work with Young Carers and professionals in schools.
Action for Family Carers makes a positive difference to the lives of Carers including Young Carers.
