We campaign

Carers UK is at the forefront of the carers’ movement bringing carers together to have a voice and deliver lasting change. We’ll keep campaigning until we can all look after loved ones without putting our own lives on hold. Together we can make life better for carers.

We’ve been campaigning with carers for 50 years, transforming understanding and winning critical developments in carers’ rights. In these challenging times, our work has never been more important as we seek to protect these rights, while pressing ahead to break new ground.

We are able to speak with authority in our policy and campaigning work because we are grounded in the reality of carers’ experiences, backed up with vital evidence through our research.

We ensure carers’ voices reach decision-makers at the highest level, building on our research to influence and change policy. We value working in partnership with others and we’re tenacious in pursuing changes that look impossible.

Through our recent year-long Caring & Family Finances Inquiry we conducted evidence sessions with carers throughout the UK, highlighting the devastating impact of benefit cuts for carers struggling to hold families together.

The Inquiry forms the foundation for our We Care. Don’t You? campaign, calling for Government to protect carers and their families from cuts to benefits and support services.

We support carers to tell their stories in all kinds of media to help other carers know they are not alone and find the help they need. Our media work helps improve public understanding of how caring affects people’s lives and provides a platform for our campaigns to bring about lasting change.
