The National Garden Scheme is one of our most generous and longest-standing supporters, opening around 3,700 gardens in England and Wales.

National Garden Scheme garden

A partnership for unpaid carers

Under the scheme, hundreds of private gardens open across England and Wales (charging a small entrance fee) and together they raise around £2m every year for
nursing and care charities. To date, more than £3m has been raised to support unpaid carers in England and Wales. 

A big thank you to everyone who has already visited a garden in support of Carers Trust this year – it makes a big difference for carers. Gardens are open all year long so there's plenty of time left.

This year, the National Garden Scheme will continue to help us raise the profile of carers’ issues and reach even more unpaid carers by supporting our network of local carer services which offer help to carers and their families.
