This award will transform the support carers receive, providing grants to individual carers and matching donations to kick-start vital projects, amongst other work.
Giles Meyer, Carers Trust CEO, said:
“We are thrilled to be one of the newest charities supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery. Three in five of us will become carers and anyone can become a carer at any point in their lives. It’s therefore vital that help and support are available when it is most needed.
