Use your experiences to make a difference to other carers, in Surrey and nationally.

Share your story

As a carer, sharing your experience can help others – and make a difference.

Everyone’s experience is different but carers face many common issues. Your story will resonate with other carers and will help them realise they’re not alone. And it will improve everyone’s understanding of carers’ lives and the support they need. Stories can often help effect real change.

So we’d love to hear from you about your experience. We might then ask you to share your story in a number of ways.

  • On our website, as part of our Carer Stories
  • In our communications – printed and digital – such as leaflets, posters, social media or our Annual Report
  • In a press release – with the potential of going on to be a Media Voice.

Media Voices are Surrey carers we’ve supported who are happy to speak to the media to share their story and talk about the work of Action for Carers. We offer support, back-up, and, when possible, media training.
