Carers Leeds is an independent charity that gives support, advice and information to unpaid carers aged 16 and over. Established in 1996, our team of expert support workers are dedicated to improving the lives of the 72,000 carers in Leeds.
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.
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.

*If a language is not supported by Carers Leeds, we try to offer an initial meeting with a carer with an interpreter. The carer will then be helped to link in with a range of services that will be able to help them in their own language. Strong links exist with the range of community groups across Leeds.
