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.
A video storytelling, coaching and peer conversation project that supports people to produce and share their own video stories; celebrate formative life experiences; share how they have coped with experiences of loss with peers; and better understand the learning and legacies taken from their life experiences.
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.
