From coffee mornings or afternoon tea and sponsored walks to live music events and more, taking part in a fundraising activity or organising one is a great way to support Carers in Hertfordshire. Throughout the year we are pleased to get involved with fundraising events organised by individuals, businesses, schools and groups held to support us. We also plan our own activities or have fundraising and information stands at various community events or activities that you can join in too.

Please consider joining us or getting involved in an event. We welcome all support as it makes a big difference to ensure we continue making carers count.

Below is a list of upcoming events. To learn more about any event please get in touch with the contact, details provided and  if you want to find out about volunteering at any of them please call 01992 58 69 69 or email
