Carers in Hertfordshire is a well-respected, independent, carer-led charity, established in 1995, which aims to ensure that all unpaid family carers within Hertfordshire are recognised and valued, informed and supported in their caring role, have the opportunity for a life outside caring and can exercise a collective voice in the county.
Carers in Hertfordshire:
- support adult carers and young carers (aged 8 to 18).
- provide information, problem solving and support.
- work closely and collaboratively with professional staff in a wide range of voluntary and statutory organisations to link our services and help those organisations to develop a carer friendly focus.
3 in 5 people will be an unpaid carer at some point in their life and 1 in 3 carers will have to give up work to meet the demands of caring. Although this unpaid care saves the NHS billions of pounds a year, it comes at a cost to the unpaid family carer - physically, emotionally and financially.
