Midland Mencap is a lead partner in Birmingham Carers Hub, which is made up of a group of not-for-profit organisations, who have come together with the mission of making a real difference to the lives of unpaid carers.

Our aim is simple – to improve the physical and mental wellbeing of unpaid carers, young and old, including parent-carers, so that families stay healthier and happier together, for longer. We know that, as a carer, sometimes it can be hard to know where to turn for information, support and advice.

That is why we do everything we can, to keep unpaid carers informed and supported through our Family Wellbeing Service. If you come to us with a question, we will do everything in our power to either answer it ourselves or put you in touch with someone who can.
