Supporting Carers Across the UK
Areas Bridgit has already supported carers across the UK
Are you an unpaid carer and looking for support? Then we’re here for you.
Bridgit Care is an organisation that helps unpaid carers across the UK. They are supported by the government.
There are more than 6.5 million carers in the UK. Many of them are unknown to organisations and professionals and do not receive support in their caring role or personal lives.
Bridgit Care aims to change this.
“Taking care of someone can be tough and it can leave you with no time to look after yourself. Bridgit Care is here to help. We’ll take care of you, so you can take care of them.” Bridgit Care
Free Online Support for Carers
Access instant & personalised support
Caring for someone can be hard, and it’s tough to find the help you need when you’re busy.
There’s so much information available that it’s confusing to know where to begin.
That’s why we created a special tool that gives you the information you need when you need it, customised for the needs of carers.
Chat with your virtual carer coach
Ask Bridgit chats to you and finds out what as a carer you are finding difficult, and may need support with.
Instant advice is provided, along with a self-help support plan; highlighting suggestions, tips and local events.
You can ask Bridgit anything. All you need is WhatsApp and 5 minutes to share some information about your role as a carer and access support local to you.

“The support has helped me find local support and events for me and my son. The email reminders have been good and helped me think about things.”
Councils and Carer Charities
Are you a Council, NHS Provider, or Charity looking for innovative ways to support your carers?
Bridgit Care works with Councils, the NHS and Carer Charities across the UK, to help identify carers and scale the support provided with the use of technology.
Bridgit Care provides support with :
- Identification – Increase the number of carers identified and in support.
- Smart Assessments – Increase access to extra help when needed and reduce administration.
- Personalised Self Help & Triage – Scale carer support and reduce system demands.
- 121 Carer Support – Improve carers access to support at the point they need it.
- Learning – Insights to help improve carer support within the local area and wider system.
“Bridgit is an exciting and important step for the council to encourage more people who care for others to access the free support they are entitled to. To have shaped Bridgit with local expert input has been excellent and I encourage anyone who is or thinks they may be a carer, to simply explore Bridgit for themselves.”
