Thank you to all of the carers, supporters, funders, commissioners, staff and Network Partner members who contributed to the development of The Make Carers Count Programme.

Make Carers Count strategic framework bannerThis is a strategic framework that will enable us over the next 5 year period to reach more carers.

It will also provide innovative and scaleable solutions to support more carers whilst at the same time ensuring the long term financial viability of Carers Trust and Network Partners together.

This is a new and exciting way of working for us and we are delighted to share with you The Make Carers Count Programme which will be delivered by The Carers Trust Network.

Providing the very best support for unpaid carers

It is our ambition to provide the very best support for the UK's seven million unpaid carers of today and ten million carers of tomorrow.

Make Carers Count strategic framework coverWe want to ensure that carers are recognised, supported and valued and that we can deliver on these ambitions despite a reduction in funding available to provide that support.

Many of you are key supporters and advocates for carers and many of you are carers too.

We would like to thank you for sharing your views with us during this process and now invite you to work with us to turn our plans into reality and make a long term difference.

With 3 in 5 of us becoming a carer at some point in our lives, this could not be more relevant to everyone.
