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.
Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges unpaid carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK.
We rely on the generosity of the general public to donate and support carers in desperate need of help across the UK. Donate to Carers Trust and we can change the lives of unpaid carers for the better.
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.
