More About The Organisation

Organisation Description

About the Organisation

Carers UK is here to make life better for carers. Looking after someone can be tough, but you’re not on your own. We are here to listen, to give you expert advice and information that is tailored to your situation, to champion your rights and campaign for lasting change and to and support you in finding new ways to manage at home, work or wherever you are.

The Carers UK Adviceline provides expert information and advice to people looking after a loved one. Open five days a week and covering the whole of the UK, get in touch for advice on benefits and tax credits, carers’ employment rights, assessments, services and how to challenge decisions.
There is also a listening service so you can talk through your caring situation with a trained volunteer who understands what you are going through.
