Forward Carers

Forward Carers is a consortium of not-for-personal-profit organisations, which have come together with the mission of making a real difference to the lives of carers. Health Exchange is an active supporter and holds a Directorship.

We know that 1 in 8 people are caring for a loved one or dependent, which means there are over 107,000 carers in Birmingham alone. Numbers are expected to grow, with caring responsibilities affecting many of us at some point, which may mean endless juggling of care, work, family and social life.

Commissioned by Birmingham City Council, Forward Carers runs the Birmingham Carers Hub and aims to improve the physical and mental wellbeing of carers, young and old, including parent carers, so that families stay healthier and happier together, for longer.
