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 thrilled that Her Majesty The Queen and Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal joined four carers and our CEO, Gareth Howells, in a very special video call to mark Carers Week.
There are over 7 million unpaid carers in the UK. At Carers Trust we aim to provide them with the support, advice and information necessary to assist them.
We rely on the generosity of the general public to donate and support carers in desperate need of help across the UK. A gift, no matter what size, can make a real difference to a carer's life.
Please help support unpaid carers through the Coronavirus crisis by donating to our Carers Emergency Fund.
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.
