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 Trust is committed to providing opportunities for young and young adult carers under 25 years to achieve and develop your future aspirations and goals through our Young Carers’ Futures programme.
Lockdown has been really difficult for young adult carers with many spending more time caring than before. Your gift today could help young adult carers reconnect with the world, get online, take a break and build friendships.
My Mental Health is a Carers Trust project which ran from 2017 to 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 for 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.
