Our vision at Carers Trust is that unpaid carers are heard, valued and have access to the support, advice and resources they need to live a fulfilling life alongside caring.
There are around 7 million unpaid carers in the UK. That's one in ten people. And three in five people will be unpaid carers at some point in their lives. Read some of their stories.
Carers Trust is delighted to publish Building a Caring Society, our refreshed strategy for 2022 – 2025.
This summer, Bolton Businessman Andrew Crompton is undertaking the challenge of a lifetime by riding his bike thousands of miles from his hometown of Bolton to Melbourne, Australia.
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.
