Action For Carers (Guildford)

ACTION FOR CARERS Action for Carers (AfC) is led by carers, run by an executive committee of carers and supported by professionals from Health, Social Services and the voluntary sector. We have built databases covering Young Carers (under 18s who look after parents and/or siblings), Moving and Handling (information, advice, training and support for carers who undertake moving and handling) and Learning and Work (support, information, advocacy for carers across Surrey for employment, training and learning opps). The company has recently grown hugely resulting in our design of a new Carer Support database with 40+ users using a SQL Server back end and Access front end. We have also gone through the complex and detailed process of making sure the company conforms to GDPR by building in a new consent system which will gradually replace the old one.
