Carers Worldwide is the only organisation exclusively highlighting and tackling the issues facing unpaid family carers in low- and middle-income countries.
Family carers are an invisible army of people providing a vital service to society yet their own needs are routinely ignored. This vulnerable and hidden group are at high risk of social stigma, isolation, ill health and poverty. We promote their inclusion and give them a voice.
Since 2012 we have been working in South Asia to highlight the important role played by unpaid family carers and advocating for their inclusion into mainstream development programmes.
We partner with carefully selected local NGOs in our countries of operation who, with our support and funding, implement programmes and strategies that holistically transform the mental, physical, social, and economic wellbeing of carers. We currently work in partnership with 15 local NGOs across India, Nepal and Bangladesh and since our inception, have transformed the lives of over 120,000 carers and family members.
A recent independent report commissioned for our 10th anniversary, found that for every £1 invested, our Carers Worldwide Model generates £7.79 of social and material return.
Our Mission is to achieve recognition of the role of carers and to transform the lives of carers, their families and their communities.
We align with the following UN Sustainable Development Goals:
