Support us

Action for Family Carers exists to support unpaid Carers across Essex. Much of the work that we do is reliant on fundraising and donations. 

£10 provides transport for a Young Carer to come to one of our club nights. £150 supports volunteer-led counselling for 5 Carers.  £500 would fund a Young Carers club for a month.

Any and every contribution, no matter how big or small, will make a difference to  unpaid Carers in Essex. If you can't support us financially please consider volunteering.

We ask Carers what makes the most impact to them and your gift means that we have funds that can be used for those activities and for those services which are not always funded or provided for via grants. We always do our best to respect donor's wishes.

Our Charity is a small not for profit organisation and your gift will to be used and/or invested for the benefit of unpaid Carers.

We are grateful for each and every donation to Action for Family Carers.
