Who We Are

In addition to offering free supports and services, we also advocate on behalf of family carers at local, regional and national level along with lobbying and policy development in support of a comprehensive National Carers’ Strategy.

Family Carers Ireland offers specific programmes of support for groups of carers including young carers, isolated carers, carers for children with special needs, carers of adults with intellectual disability and carers of persons with mental health difficulties.

We are also an approved provider of home support services under the HSE scheme supporting the carer and cared for person.
