More than two thirds of unpaid carers are managing their stress levels by gardening, according to a new survey by Carers Trust, the UKs largest charity for unpaid carers.
You can help make sure that the Government and as many MPs as possible understand why it is important that the law is changed to improve young carers' rights.
We welcomed details of The Care and Support Bill, including the creation of new duties to assess and meet the needs of adult carers.
Young adult carers often find it difficult to juggle caring with school college or work. So Carers Trust is working with The University of Nottingham to find out what helps.
The figure has been achieved less than three months after the launch of our Charity of the Year partnership with The Co-operative.
