Find out how we use your gift to Carers Trust, and some of the ways that your money can directly help unpaid carers.

We care about spending your gifts carefully

£ - For every £1 you give, we ensure that over 81p is spent directly on charitable activities.

£ - For every £1 you give, 18p is spent on raising money to keep the issue of caring and carers at the forefront of people's minds.

£ - Just over 1p is spent on governance costs.

£ - And for every £1 we spend raising money, we raise £5.17. By spending money on fundraising we generate even more money for carers.

Some of the ways your gift could help carers...

  • £15 could provide a place at a Carers Trust local carers service, where a carer can take part in a range of activities from arts and crafts to sports.
  • £25 could go towards a dedicated mentor who can offer support to a young carer while they are at school. 
  • £50 could help us maintain our online discussion forums, giving carers 24-hour access to support.
  • £75 could save an exhausted carer valuable time by going towards a washing machine or dishwasher – a vital piece of equipment for a carer.
  • £100 could give peace of mind to an anxious carer by going towards a series of counselling sessions.
