Hello! And Welcome

FamilyCarersNet has been set-up out of the inspiration from others, personal experiences and a vision of how we can help with the needs of family carers in a way that focuses on their individual life circumstances.
We too are carers. Our aim is to help carers. With our growing number of partners and sponsors, we are able to achieve this through membership to FamilyCarersNet. Dive in around the site to find out more.

In The Pod

Hi Folks. We have a Young Carers youth club that started last Wednesday. It's a 10 week pilot that could go weekly if it all goes well. We're after YC's in the Ipswich area. All info including sign up is detailed on the poster. Many thanks Joe

We hope all the mums had a nice day yesterday. Beautiful weather. Here's to a wonderful summer of 2017 (I know we're only just in to Spring... - but ever the sunshine optimist!!)

Thanks for all the chats today. For those who contacted on private chat remember you can book a free one to one counselling session with MTCIC here; https://familycarersnet.co.uk/product/counselling/ Have a good weekend and Happy Mother Day to all you mums out there.

What are you doing for mothers day?

Hi Everyone we are here to chat or help until 3pm. Post your comments below or for private counselling click our 'Tree Avatar' and then the speech icon (same way as for Facebook direct messaging).

It was good to find this site looking forward to getting involved

Any idea what to buy for someone that doesn't get out of the house?

Campaigns & Initiatives

We’re working to recognise and understand the experiences of carers affected by violent, abusive and harmful behaviour.  In partnership with the University of Birmingham.

Understand more

2.3 million carers have left employment for caring duties.  Unfortunately employers are so often unaware of the reasons, yet would happily help carers if they knew.

You can get involved

Activities & Offers

    We know it can be hard as a carer and quite often, there’s no-one to talk to.  Whether you’d like to chat with a Counsellor or just someone you don’t know as a way of talking about life, you can do this with professionally trained Counsellors.
