CRY aims to rescue and restore children and young people broken by poverty, oppression, exclusion and abuse. We set up projects that provide for the most basic needs - food, water, shelter, education - in some of the poorest nations in the world. But we recognise we can't do that on our own, so we train and support local people and churches to run the projects, using their knowledge to make the projects sustainable for the long-term. Founded in 1992 by Martyn Dunsford, CRY now works in around 20 different nations, and over its history has raised over £4,000,000 for the projects it has worked on.

Our vision is to make sure carers are identified, recognised, valued, respected and supported in their caring role. Carers Support Centre is an independent registered charity, established in 1997.

Our range of services includes a confidential telephone information and advice line, carers’ magazine, Carers Emergency Card, one-to-one casework support, carers’ groups, activities for carers to take time out, regular breaks and training courses. We also work to identify and support carers in hospital and GP settings through our health team and support carers to get into – and stay in – employment. We are managed by a board of trustees who bring experience in operational and financial management and marketing at a senior level. Most of the trustees became involved because of their own experience of being carers. We have attained Level 2 Trusted Charity Mark status. Carers Support Centre is a network partner of Carers Trust, benefiting from being able to share good practice with a network of over 160 partners throughout the UK.
