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 30 years, has been providing information and support for Carers who have unpaid caring responsibilities for others.
We are the only Carers Trust Network Partner and Centre of Excellence in Essex and we have been awarded the Trusted Charity Mark at Level 2, NCVO’s highest quality mark for charity management and governance.
We provide information, advice, befriending, employment, counselling, activity groups 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.”

That's why we are proud to offer a free and completely confidential service dedicated to providing you with the support you need. Our team of compassionate professionals are here to lend a listening ear and assist you through any difficult situation you may be facing.
