Carers FIRST currently receives funding from KCC, Medway Council, Lincolnshire Council, London Borough of Waltham Forest and from Grants and Trusts. However, raising funds to run events and much needed respite activities for Carers remains challenging. We therefore rely on donations from groups and individuals as well as organised events.

If you would like to make a donation, or would like to get involved or organise a fundraising event, no matter how small or big, we would love to hear from you. You can either use the “contact us” facility on this website, email or call us on 0300 303 1555

There are several ways you can support us:

Virgin Money Giving: This is a simple way to make one off or regular donations to Carers FIRST through this site. Don’t forget if you are a UK tax payer to tick the box so we can claim an additional 25p for every £ you donate.
