We are the ones carers trust to take action and provide help and advice for the millions of people caring for a family member or friend. We are the ones carers trust to ensure that the enormous, yet unpaid, contribution they make to society and to those they care for is fully recognised, appreciated and valued.
Carers Trust works to improve support, services and recognition for anyone living with the challenges of caring, unpaid, for a family member or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or addiction problems. With our Network Partners, we aim to ensure that information, advice and practical support are available to all carers across the UK.
Together with our Network Partners, we provide access to desperately-needed breaks, information and advice and education, training and employment opportunities. We help carers to maintain their own health and wellbeing and support them so they do not feel isolated. We run play and support schemes for young carers. Our Network Partners benefit from the provision of grants, our work to improve carers’ services and we help carers make their needs and voices heard and provide someone to talk to, in person and online.
Carers Trust is the largest provider of comprehensive support services, reaching more than 443,000 carers, including more than 34,000 young carers, through a unique network of 142 independently managed carers’ centres, 76 schemes, 112 young carers’ services and our interactive website, www.carers.org.
