Welcome to the Essex Carers Network

We are a network of families caring for a family member with a learning disability which may include autism and other disabilities too.

We work to ensure the lived experiences and voices of our families informs and influences the future landscape and opportunities for people with a learning disability and autism and their families in Essex.

We work to support our families to have the tools they need to feel strong, resilient and empowered in order for them to advocate for their family.

We are a recognised and well established voice of families in Essex caring for a family member with a learning disability and autism, working co-productively with Essex County Council and other key organisations to find solutions to the challenges that our families face.

We work with others to celebrate the vital role that family carers play and work to ensure their contribution is valued.
