Advocare - Caring for Carers

Advocare was set up by a small group of carers and former carers to help fellow unpaid family caregivers. Run by carers for carers, Advocare - Caring for Carers is as far as we know the only charity of its kind in the country. We seek to empower unpaid carers to speak openly about their needs and concerns with a free voice.

Anyone over the age of eighteen who is or has been an unpaid carer looking after a frail, sick or disabled loved one may become a member of Advocare.

We value unpaid carers as individuals and for the work they do. Our Caring for Carers service is free to all members of Advocare. As well as offering a conventional 'listening ear' we:

  • provide information, support and advocacy
  • run 'Assert', our unique carer-centred empowerment programme
  • refer people to free counselling if required
