Action for Carers Surrey
Enabling carers to have a voice and realise a life outside caring

Our Vision, Mission and Values


“To enable carers of all ages to have a voice and realise a life inside and outside of caring”


Founded in 1992 to make a positive impact on the lives of carers in Surrey, Action for Carers Surrey is a nationally and locally respected advocate of carers rights and services.

We strive to :

  • Be at the forefront of best practice as a carer led centre of professional expertise for those working with carers of all ages in Surrey
  • Enable carers to have a voice and ensure their views are recognised, valued and incorporated into the strategic plans of all partner agencies locally and nationally
  • Work with both statutory and voluntary sector partners towards ensuring the nationally recognised rights for carers to support and services are fully realised in Surrey
  • Deliver our own carer services to the highest standards, using innovative and imaginative ways to make a real difference to carers


Our values confirm our commitment to quality and equality. They define the way we conduct ourselves and help us drive excellence throughout our organisation.

We believe in:

Commitment from skilled and dedicated staff who place carers at the centre of all we do

Aspiring as one united organisation to deliver the best specialist services for carers in Surrey

Respecting each other, carers and partner organisations and embracing equality and diversity in everything we do

Empowering carers of all ages to have an equal voice and contribute their views to influence the services that matter to them, including our own

Recognising and responding to change by testing out new and innovative ways to support carers more effectively

Strengthening partnership and collaboration within our own organisation and with other organisations and service commissioners to enable everyone to devise and deliver their own objectives to improve outcomes for carers
