Welcome to Carers FIRST Essex

It is estimated there are over 145,000 people in Essex providing care for a relative or friend. Carers do an amazing job, and have the right to be supported. You do not have to wait until you are struggling or there is a crisis before you ask for support. The earlier you get help, the more difference it can make.  

  Find out what support we provide in Essex by visiting our Services pages or contact us to talk about your caring situation.
