The Carers in Hertfordshire Charity

Carers in Hertfordshire provides advice, information and support to unpaid carers - people looking after someone who is elderly, disabled, has a physical or mental illness or who misuses drugs or alcohol.

Ensuring Hertfordshire's carers are identified, supported and stay well, is at the heart of our work. We give carers a voice with opportunities to meet other carers. We also enable carers to share their views or experiences with those providing or planning health and social care services in Hertfordshire.

We support carers of all ages - children and adults - if they live, work or care in Hertfordshire. Our services are provided free to carers.

We also have a Care Service in Hertsmere, Three Rivers and Watford, which involves professional Care Support Workers providing individual packages of care to people with care needs through domiciliary care or Carers' Breaks.

Have your say

Use your experiences to help to improve the services that are available to you and the person you care for.

Carer services

Our services are available, free, to all carers who live in Hertfordshire or care for someone who lives in Hertfordshire.

Young carers

The Young Carers Project offers free activities, support and a voice to children or young people who care for someone in their own home.
