About us

Southend Carers is an independent charity run by and for carers. We help carers get the support they need – whether that’s financial, practical or emotional.

Our staff and volunteers are either carers themselves or experienced care professionals. That means we always put the needs of carers first.  Our mission is to make life easier and fairer to carers in the Southend Borough.

We understand that when it comes to caring, one size does not fit all. Our expert information and advice is always tailored to your individual situation.  Whether you are caring for a neighbour, a loved one, a child or an elderly relative we are here to support everyone in a caring role that lives in the Southend Borough so please do register with us.

We send out quarterly Newsletters which contain really important information and advice for carers as well as any events we are planning in the future.  We have a dedicated Outreach Worker who is out and about in the community and is more than happy to give advice and help you work through the process of a getting a Carers Assessment.  If we feel there are other organisations out there that can offer more specialised support in your caring role we are happy to pass these details on too.
