Action for Family Carers is an Essex charity, which for almost 30 years has been providing information and support to carers who have unpaid, caring responsibilities for others.
We are a Carers Trust Network Partner, Centre of Excellence and hold NCVO's PQASSO Level 3 Quality Mark.
We provide information, befriending, counselling, volunteering opportunities and respite day care across the county,
working within schools and a variety of community settings.
