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.

In 2016, Crossroads Care Hertfordshire South was integrated into Carers in Hertfordshire to strengthen the services and support for unpaid carers and the people they care for. Our Care Service provides Carers Breaks and Domiciliary Care in Hertsmere, Three Rivers and Watford. For some carers a great break is the best support as it enables them to have time to themselves and a life outside of their caring role.
