About Us:

Carers FIRST is a much loved and valued charity supporting more than 4,100 people across Essex who look after a relative or friend who due to ill health, physical or mental illness, disability, frailty, or addiction cannot manage without their support. We provide information, advice, guidance, emotional support, training and activities. For many caring is a rewarding and positive experience for others without the right help and support it can feel overwhelming. 

We need your help so we can continue to offer our service! Funding will be used to celebrate, value and recognise the role of our carers by offering them health and wellbeing therapies, social activities and day trips with other carers who understand, giving them a break from their caring responsibilities, reduce their feelings of isolation and to help them to get the personal support they need.

Please do sign up to the Lottery today to help unpaid carers across Essex. Thank you for your support and good luck!

Yours sincerely,

Alison Tayor

nterim Chief Executive Officer
