About us

York Carers Centre is an independent charity and a network member of the national Carers Trust. We work in partnership with carers, statutory and voluntary organisations to ensure unpaid carers throughout York have access to confidential information, advice and support. We work with carers to influence positive change in service delivery with local government, employers, schools and health providers.

York Carers Centre supports carers of all ages:

  • Adults
  • Young adults (18 to 25)
  • Young carers (5 to 18)

Our funding comes from a variety of sources and our principal funders are the City of York Council and the Vale of York Clinical Commissioning Group.

We rely on grants from charitable trusts and on donations and fundraising to enable us to deliver specific projects.
