Carers FIRST is a charity supporting adult and young Carers across the districts of South and North West Kent and Medway. A Carer being anyone who provides unpaid support to a loved one. Carers can be of any age and may be looking after a relative including husband or wife, friend or neighbour.
Our trained staff work in the community supporting Carers, ensuring we respond to the needs of Carers locally. We provide emotional and practical support, advice, information, guidance and offer statutory carers assessments, training, events, social groups, short break respite, activities trips and more.
Carers FIRST work closely with specialist Dementia Organisations, which enables our support workers to signpost Carers to other services when needed. We also run a variety of Dementia Carers Support Groups and Lunches.
