Carers Leeds is an independent charity that gives specialist and tailored support, advice and information to unpaid carers aged over 16. Established in 1996, our team of expert support workers are dedicated to improving the lives of thousands of carers in Leeds.
What is a carer?
A carer is someone who, without payment, provides help and support to a parent, partner, child, relative, friend or neighbour who could not manage without their help. This could be due to age, physical or mental health issues, substance misuse or disability.
What do Carers Leeds do?
We deliver confidential one to one and group support that helps carers keep on caring. We are based in the centre of Leeds, and also offer support in local communities, over the phone and online.
Carers Leeds works in partnership with community groups, local businesses and third sector organisations to give carers in Leeds a network of support that covers general and specialist carers issues.
