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.

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.

In collaboration with the Scottish Patient Safety Programme for Mental Health (SPSPMH) Carers Trust Scotland carried out interviews to hear about experiences of restraint and seclusion, how this affected people with lived and living experience, and how things could be improved.
A donation to Carers Trust allows us to reach more of the UK’s hidden carers and provide the support they need to care for the people they love.
