Carers Association

The Carers Association is Ireland's national voluntary organisation for and of family carers in the home. Family carers provide high levels of care to a range of people including frail older people, people with severe disabilities, the terminally ill and children with special needs. The Association was established in 1987.

  • We aim to provide family carers with emotional and practical supports;
  • promote the interests of family carers and those receiving care in the home;
  • lobby and advocate in an effort to gain recognition and social justice for carers' invaluable contribution to Irish society;
  • work in partnership with other organisations to further the interests and welfare of family carers.
