Some carers volunteer when their caring role has ended and they are looking for a new challenge.
Other carers volunteer alongside their caring role to help them keep their skills up to date or simply because they feel passionate about it. It can give them a break from caring and the chance to get out and about.
Volunteering can also give you a chance to gain valuable experience that may help you when you apply for a job or further study.
Volunteer for Carers Trust
There may be volunteering opportunities available in Carers Trust offices in London, Essex, Rugby, Cardiff or Glasgow.
