Carers Leeds is an independent charity that gives support, advice and information to unpaid carers aged 16 and over. Established in 1996, their expert team of support workers are dedicated to improving the lives of the 74,000 carers in Leeds.
A carer is someone who, without payment, provides help and support to a parent, partner, child, relative, friend or neighbour who could not manage without their help. This could be due to age, physical or mental health issues, substance misuse or disability.
Carers Leeds deliver confidential one to one and group support that helps carers keep on caring. Based in the centre of Leeds they also offer support in local communities, over the phone and online.
Carers Leeds works in partnership with community groups, local businesses and third sector organisations to give carers in Leeds a network of support that covers general and specialist carers issues.
