Help & Advice

No one should have to care alone. Every day we hear from family carers who need help. Some are early in their caring journey and struggling to navigate the maze of services and supports, while others may need help accessing financial support or help to cope with the pressures of caring.

Offering a listening ear

Family Carers Ireland is here to help by providing carers with expert advice, information and support. We have support centres located across the country, each one staffed by a fully trained Carer Support Manager who is there to advise and support carers as well as advocate on their behalf. 

Our confidential National Freephone Careline is available around the clock, allowing you to talk to experienced and supportive staff who will listen to your concerns and offer practical advice. 

Alternatively, you can download one of our many information booklets, rights and entitlement guides or the Carers Companion.

Having access to the right information at the right time and in the right format can make a huge difference to the life of a family carer. Our resources are designed to bring you the advice and information you need when and how you need it.
