Caring Unseen: 1000 family carers share their experiences

We work in partnership with families everyday and witness the love, care and concern shown by worried family members who might not even think of themselves as ‘carers’.

To better understand the scale of the quiet crisis unfolding behind front doors across the country, we polled 1000 carers about their support, wellbeing, and perspectives about the future.

The results are stark, and demand action.

We’re here for you

It can be overwhelming and isolating, and we believe there isn’t enough information, support and resources available for people needing extra help, and their loved ones. We are on a mission to help; through providing information sessions, interviews with experts, local knowledge, and helpful care tips.

Our “You Are Not Alone” campaign aims to address the lack of support and resources for individuals needing some extra help to remain independent, and their family carers.

GoodOaks, with its partnership approach, seeks to empower families and improve lives by providing essential support and celebrating the joy of staying at home.
