Carers in Hertfordshire

Charity description

Carers in Hertfordshire logo
“Having Carers in Hertfordshire prevented me from going completely insane. I found people who listened, provided me with the correct information and made me feel I was not alone..”

Carers in Hertfordshire is the county’s leading carer charity working to ensure that Hertfordshire’s unpaid carers are able to have a life of their own outside of caring, are recognised, valued and empowered, and get vital information, support and training.

We’ve been helping carers since 1995 and they’re at the heart of our organisation – 80% of our trustees and 30% of our staff are carers with direct experience of the challenges involved.

In 2013 we worked with over 12,000 of Hertfordshire's carers, from as young as age 8 years old. Our aim is to support many more carers and with your help we can!

Your support makes a real and lasting difference to unpaid carers’ lives, and you can be sure you’re donating to an innovative, well-run charity that’s dedicated to helping carers.

· We hold the PQASSO Quality Award

· We demonstrates high Social Return on Investment as audited by Baker Tilley (2011)

· We’ve won awards for our work with carers – most recently our Information Services Manager has been recognised as an Expert Practitioner working with GP surgeries, two of our outstanding long-term volunteers have been honoured with three “Comet Community Awards” between them and another won an Award for her achievements in Creative Writing. In 2014 we have been finalists and winners in the Comet Community Awards, Inspring Hertfordshire Awards and FSB -Hertfordshire Business Awards.

Lots of carers miss out on the kind of things that most of us take for granted. With your help we can make sure they don’t!
