Carers in Hertfordshire is a well-respected, independent, carer-led charity, established in 1995. The charity works to ensure that all Hertfordshire's unpaid family carers are recognised, valued and supported in their caring role and have the opportunity for a life outside caring and can exercise a collective voice in the county. We support adult carers and young carers and provide information and support. We also arrange a variety of ways for carers to 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.

Carers in Hertfordshire has joined forces with Crossroads Care Hertfordshire South. We see this as a great opportunity for the future and plans for integration of services are well underway.
