Who we help

Anyone, of any age and any background can become a carer. We're here to help all Surrey's carers.

Action for Carers is here to support all Surrey’s carers.

Anyone can become a carer at any time. Carers come from all sorts of backgrounds. And can be any age – we support carers from 5 to 95.

The majority of people we support are adult carers – and we have a great deal of help available.

Specialist support

Action for Carers also has specialist support for other carers.

If you’re a young carer (aged under 18), our Surrey Young Carers Team offers free information and support, plus workshops, activities and groups, to give you time out from caring and help you achieve as much as you can in life.

Our support for young carers

If you’re aged between 18-24, our Young Adult Carers Team can help you as you finish school, or college, start work, or think about leaving home.
