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.
Our new survey shows the Coronavirus pandemic’s dramatic impact on young carers' and young adult carers' wellbeing.
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.
Are you an adult providing unpaid care for a family member or friend? Do you want to help shape future government support for carers? We want to hear from you!
Taking the survey is easy and should take less than 10 minutes to complete. The survey will close at 10pm on Sunday 18 October.
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.
