Carers FIRST

We are a charity supporting adult and young Carers, a Carer being anyone who provides unpaid support to a loved one. Carers can be of any age and may be looking after a relative including husband or wife, friend or neighbour. We work across Lincolnshire, South and North West Kent, Medway and Waltham Forest.

We provide emotional and practical support, advice, information, guidance and offer statutory carers assessments, training, events, social groups, short break respite, activities trips and more.

Our Information Booklets for carers are now available. To download a copy, see our NEWLETTER section.
