Carers in the ME Community


For National Carers Week we are highlighting our 'Carers in the ME Community' post which is our one stop post with lots of information for carers of people with ME, including carers of people with very severe/profound ME.

Our post for carers of people with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) includes tips, guidance, support and advice as well as information on accessing carer payments. Please see the link to our post below. 

Membership of Family Carers Ireland (FCI) 

(FCI) is the national charity representing Ireland’s 500,000+ family carers who provide care in the home to loved ones, family members, relatives, friends and neighbours of all ages.

‘Our focus as an organisation is on family carers. We are the charity that asks the carer how they are. Whether you are caring for a young child or an adult with an intellectual or physical disability, a spouse with a terminal illness, an ageing parent or a loved one with a mental health illness, FCI is here to help you maintain your caring routine and to inform policy and public debate surrounding family caring.

We understand that family caring can be rewarding but also a struggle and when you need our help, we are standing by to support you. We believe that no one should have to care alone.

Your membership and involvement counts. Carers’ strength comes from unity in numbers.  The bigger our carer community grows, the stronger your voice becomes on issues directly related to family caring.’ – FCI
