Since 2012, Action for Family Carers has been providing the only dedicated counselling service for unpaid Carers in Essex. In 2020 there was a 15% increase in Carers contacting us for counselling which directly correlates with the Coronavirus pandemic. In recognition of the growing need, Essex County Council has now commissioned AfFC to continue to deliver this service. The service will provide invaluable support to unpaid Carers and their families, decreasing likelihood of Carer breakdown. The service will be delivered face to face, and via Zoom and by telephone.

For further information please contact Julie. If you are interested in volunteering as a counsellor and joining our rapidly increasing team, we would love to hear from you.
