OUR VISON

Carers WorldwideOur vision is a world in which the needs of every carer are routinely met in order to achieve their physical, emotional, economic and social wellbeing.

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to enable carers, service providers, policy makers and other stakeholders to recognise and respond to the needs of carers in the developing world, ensuring balance and equal value is given to the needs of the carer and the person receiving care.

In my opinion, caregivers are an invisible community, sometimes even invisible to themselves…this is the first thing that has to change.

Dr Ajay Kumar, Psychiatrist, India

WORKING WITH CARERS – A MATTER OF URGENCY

Long-term care for people with chronic illnesses and disabilities presents an urgent challenge around the world. The WHO estimates that in developing countries the need will increase by 400% in the coming decades.

The burden placed on unpaid family Carers is immense and has a direct impact on their physical, mental and emotional health. If support is not provided to address the needs of these Carers, the current health and social system is in risk of collapse.

Carers Worldwide provides cost effective, sustainable and easily replicable methods of providing support to Carers in developing countries.
