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.
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.
Please encourage young carers and young adult carers to complete our survey on the pressures and challenges they face.
The theme for Young Carers Action Day 2022 is tackling isolation among young carers. Find out more, including how you can get involved, and download our online resources
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.
