We aim to improve the quality of life for unpaid carers in Hackney and the City of London.
City and Hackney Carers Centre supports the unmet practical, emotional and social needs of carers. Our vision is a society in which caring is visible, valued and respected. Our mission is to make life better for carers in Hackney. We do this though education, awareness-raising, peer support, training and development. We are needed because every day 6,000 people in the UK become carers, looking after a loved one who is older, disabled or ill. Many do not know how or where to get help. Becoming a carer can happen slowly over time: or for some it's sudden. Carers make an enormous contribution to society and social care. They save the UK economy billions of pounds each year! Caring will affect us all at some point and that's why we're here: to support the 18,000 people in Hackney who are looking after someone each day.Why the community needs usOur impact on the community
