We campaign on behalf of Carers in Surrey on a number of different issues, continually consult with carers and work with decision makers within the Health Service, Social Care and the Voluntary Sector. See below to read about the issues we are currently campaigning on.
Aiming to tackle the stigma still surrounding those with a learning disability, Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust has launched a new campaign: I am Me. To find out more about the campaign, take part in the survey and make a pledge of support, follow this link:
One in four people will experience a mental health problem in any one year. Talking about mental health can aid recovery, break down stereotypes and take the taboo out of something that affects us all. Time to Change works to end mental health discrimination.

Young adult carers aged 16 – 24 are often part of a ‘hidden army’ of carers who get little in the way of recognition or support. Action for Carers Surrey is aiming to raise awareness of this group and of the help and support that is available to them in Surrey by spreading the word to young adults and those who work with them.
If you are a carer aged 18 -24 please call us on 01483 302748.
If you are under 18 years, call our young people’s service, Surrey Young Carers on 01483 568269
