Carers Trust is a major charity for, with and about carers. We work 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. Our vision is that unpaid carers count and can access the help they need to live their lives.
Findings show unpaid carers being pushed to breaking point. See results from our 2020 survey, recommendations and calls to action.
We have some fantastic prizes in our 2020 Christmas raffle and every ticket you buy will help raise vital funds to support unpaid carers this Christmas.
Our annual Christmas Carol Concert will be streamed from St John’s Smith Square, London at 6.30pm on 10 December, 2020. Book your place and help us support even more of the UK’s seven million unpaid carers.
We provide a wealth of information online to help unpaid carers access the support they need.
Locally, our network of partners support carers throughout the UK, giving them access to help, advice and breaks from caring.
