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 rely on the generosity of the public to support carers in desperate need of help across the UK. A gift, no matter what size, can make a real difference to a carer's life.
My Mental Health is a Carers Trust project which ran from Autumn 2017 to March 2021. It provided young carers, young adult carers and the staff who support them with the knowledge, confidence and opportunities to understand their mental health needs and campaign to bring about positive change.
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.
