We welcome support from individual philanthropists who want to support us to reach even more of the carers who seek our help.

Young adult carer

Whether you would like to make a one off gift (personally or through your trust or foundation), or join forces with others in your networks, for example, to create a giving circle to maximise the impact and reach of your donation, the Carers Trust Philanthropy team will work with you to ensure your personal interests and aims are met.

Jane Quayle, Senior Major Donor Manager, leads a small team who will work with you to ensure that your gift has the biggest impact possible for unpaid carers.

The Pears Foundation

The Pears Foundation is one of our longest standing and most generous supporters, having supported The Princess Royal Trust for Carers since 2002 and Carers Trust after the merger in 2012.

So far, nearly £1.5m has been awarded to provide support to carers through a whole variety of projects and activities. The funding has made a vital contribution to the progress of Carers Trust in a number of key areas.

The flexibility of their funding has also enabled us to invest where the need was the highest: policy, the support we offer to carers organisations of Carers Trust’s network and vital grants for carers.

The impact of your giving

You can leave it to us to use your donation where it is most needed, or support a specific project or area of our work which is of particular interest, which we will regularly update you on so that you can see the impact of your giving.

We offer a range of engagement opportunities for those who are interested in getting more closely involved.
