Carers Trust is a UK infrastructure charity working to transform the lives of unpaid carers via our national network of local carer organisations, who provide regulated care, information advice and guidance, and social prescribing services. Our network supports around one million unpaid carers per year in 85% of local authority areas.

We partner with our network of local carer organisations to provide funding and support, deliver innovative and evidence-based programmes, raise awareness and influence policy for unpaid carers UK-wide.

Last September we launched our refreshed strategy ‘Building a Caring Society’ , which has three overarching ambitions:

  • Every carer has access to a high quality local carer organisation
  • No carer is pushed into poverty or financially disadvantaged by their caring role
