We tackle the poverty, vulnerability, marginalisation and exclusion faced by informal carers
We partner with organisations in developing countries to raise awareness, change attitudes and transform practice in relation to informal carers. We disseminate the Carers Worldwide Model which offers a holistic approach to improve the social, economic, mental and physical well-being of carers.
