Carers Trust’s Partnership with the National Garden Scheme
The National Garden Scheme is Carers Trust’s longest standing donor and to date we have received over £3m to help support unpaid carers.
The National Garden Scheme raises money every year for caring and nursing charities, of which Carers Trust is one of the largest beneficiaries.
Over the course of our partnership, the money Carers Trust has received from the National Garden Scheme has helped us to fund our aim to support the UK’s seven million unpaid carers. This includes increasing our reach and ability to offer advice, information, respite care, and financial support to carers in their local communities as well as through our policy and campaigning work.
National Garden Scheme Festival Weekend
On 2 and 3 June the National Garden Scheme’s Festival Weekend saw multiple gardens opening in every county of England and Wales. To celebrate this, we held a Garden Adventure Challenge for all our supporters, partners, volunteers and beneficiaries to take part in. Find out more about our Garden Adventure Challenge.

Garden and Health Week
One of the key dates in the National Garden Scheme’s calendar is Garden and Health Week, which takes place between 18 and 24 August. The week aims to show the benefits of gardening on our health.
Take our Garden and Health survey
As part of the week, we would like to know how gardening is directly benefitting the health of unpaid carers. You can help by completing our short survey, which runs until June 30.
