Unpaid carers

This year, Carers UK worked with six other charities to understand how unpaid carers identify in the UK.

And 75% of people in the UK, which equates to around 19 million people have not identified as a carer.

Moreover, just under one third (around 8 million people) felt their own health and wellbeing diminished as a result of their caring responsibilities. 

We understand that caring for a family member or loved one is hard. Come and see us and we are ready to chat.
