Making Carers Count



What is Making Carers Count?

Making Carers Count is a multi-partner programme aiming to identify and support carers who are under-represented amongst the community groups we currently reach and who have been disproportionately affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

We are creating new and wider collaborations, extending engagement methods, increasing learning, and enhancing how support is delivered to unpaid carers from these groups. 


The programme is being delivered through three strands:

1. Adult carers from under-represented groups

Local, meaningful and strategic projects to improve engagement with unpaid carers currently under-represented in receiving local carer support services.

2. Young carers and young adult carers 

Dedicated services for young carers and/or young adult carers where support is widely inconsistent or does not exist.

3. Increasing access to peer support   

Improving and diversifying online support for unpaid carers.

About Making Carers Count

Making Carers Count is led by Carers Trust and delivered in partnership with its network of partners (local carer organisations) and Carers UK. It is being delivered between January 2021 and March 2024. Making Carers Count is funded by the Covid-19 Support Fund.
