Family Carer Support Service

Hft's Family Carer Support Service (FCSS) is a free national service for family carers who have a relative with a learning disability.

Our support

We support family carers in a variety of ways:

  • Providing one-to-one support by telephone, letter or email
  • Providing family carer workshops about issues affecting family carers
  • Developing family carer resources
  • Updating family carers about issues and legislation that affect them

Working in partnership

We work with different organisations and government bodies to develop support and resources and ensure a voice for family carers in policy development.
