The Carers in Hertfordshire Charity

Carers in Hertfordshire provides advice, information and support to unpaid carers – people looking after someone who is elderly, disabled, has a physical or mental illness or who misuses drugs or alcohol.

Ensuring Hertfordshire’s carers are identified, supported and stay well, is at the heart of our work. We give carers a voice with opportunities to meet other carers. We also enable carers to share their views or experiences with those providing or planning health and social care services in Hertfordshire.

We support carers of all ages – children and adults – if they live, work or care in Hertfordshire. Our services are provided free to carers.

We also have a Care Service in Hertsmere, Three Rivers and Watford, which involves professional Care Support Workers providing individual packages of care to people with care needs through domiciliary care or Carers’ Breaks.

Young Carers

  • Do you help to look after a member of your family, who is ill or disabled, or who uses drugs or alcohol?
  • Do you take on responsibility for things that would normally be done by an adult?
  • If you answered yes to these questions then you probably are a young carer.
