WE ARE COMMITTED TO

CHANGING THE LIVES OF CARERS

Family carers are an invisible army of people providing a vital service to society yet their own needs are routinely ignored. Carers Worldwide is the only organisation working exclusively and strategically to support unpaid family carers in the global South.

Since 2012 we have been working in South Asia to highlight the important role played by unpaid family carers and advocating for their inclusion into mainstream development programmes.

We partner with carefully selected local NGOs in our countries of operation who implement programmes and strategies that holistically transform the mental, physical, social, and economic wellbeing of carers.

  • 92% of family carers worry about money – 87% of family carers in Hazaribagh, India are unemployed.
  • 79% of family carers suffer from anxiety or depression – 68% of family carers in Kathmandu Valley, Nepal feel isolated.
  • 48% of family carers worry about their own health – 95% of family carers in Savar, Bangladesh have a health issue or disability
