Carers Worldwide is the only organisation exclusively highlighting and tackling the issues facing unpaid family carers in low and middle income countries. This vulnerable and hidden group, caring for family members who are disabled, sick or elderly, are at high risk of social stigma, isolation, ill health and poverty.
Vision: Our vision is a world in which the needs of every carer are routinely met in order to achieve physical, emotional, economic and social wellbeing for each individual.
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.
Our strategic goal is to serve as a catalyst to:
1. Bring about systemic change in the work of governments, charities and other agencies so that they recognise and respond to the needs of carers in the developing world.
2. Facilitate the provision of support for individual carers and their families in the developing world, bringing them better health, wellbeing and economic security.
