1 in 8 adults (around 6.5 million people) are currently carers
Every day another 6,000 people take on a caring responsibility – that equals over 2 million people each year.

Unpaid carers have access to limited resources and inadequate support, as well as experiencing a lack of awareness and understanding from the community around them. City and Hackney Carers Centre is committed to supporting them so that they do not have to manage alone.
