"Numbers published by charity Carers UK state that there is an estimated 13.6 million people in the UK caring for a loved one during the pandemic."
Lots of carers need support now more than ever
"Just 7% of all carers
receive support, and of those, about half received advice and information only."
Local Authorities struggle to provide support
Social Care Innovation Hub
"Existing carer support services are fantastic, but resource intensive. We need a new way to scale up support. "
New approaches needed
Helping to identify carers
Most Carers don't see themselves as Carers. They're just helping the ones they love.
Through targeted social media we help carers self identify as carers and access the support they deserve
Making assessments easy
We provide structured assessments available both online and within our app to submit to Local Authorities.
The assessments are designed to be easy to complete and link into wider support and resources in our carer support app.
Instant carer support
Our carer support app provides a one stop resource for carers.
Carers are guided through a structured process.
Our video guide helps the carer to set care goals, identify local services, support, and products.
Carer Support Calls
On demand and scalable
Carers can connect to our carer support service at a time that suits them.
Carer support calls are easy to book and available as either a video or phone call
Personal care devices
