Action for Family Carers supports unpaid Carers of all ages 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.

£15 would give a Carer an hour with a dedicated Support Worker.  £500 would fund a Young Carers club for a month.

We ask Carers what means the most to them and your gift means we have funds that can be used for the activities and services which are not always provided for via grants. We always do our best to respect donors’ wishes.

Our Charity is a small, no profit organisation and any 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.

Another way you could support us is by offering a service or enrichment activity at our Young Carer Clubs or Activity Groups.
