In October 2019 we launched our partnership with NRS Healthcare.
NRS Healthcare has over 70 years’ experience in supplying mobility equipment and disability aids for independent daily living and is the leading provider of community equipment to the NHS.
Through the partnership, NRS Healthcare has pledged to raise £10,000 over the next 12 months to provide vital support to unpaid carers, supporting us in our work and relieving some of the pressures that carers face.
NRS Healthcare has 22 Service Centres across the UK. Each will be hosting fundraising events for Carers Trust and Carers Trust local Network Partners, so that these funds can improve local services for unpaid carers. We are also hoping to trial the involvement of NRS occupational therapists with two local Carers Trust Network Partners.
"We have selected to work with Carers Trust as they are a UK national charity focused on supporting unpaid carers. A large proportion of the people we deal with daily are those family members who are providing some degree of unpaid care to the users of our equipment and services. As a largely unsupported group, unpaid carers are invariably under huge pressure from the care they are giving. We believe that Carers Trust is a charity which fits with our work and mission as a business and we are thrilled to have this opportunity to collaborate with them.”
Nigel Thacker, Development Director, NRS Healthcare
"Carers Trust is delighted to be working with NRS Healthcare to support unpaid carers throughout the UK. An ageing population and increasing pressure on health and social care budgets are causing a crisis in social care funding, putting real pressure on carers who are already struggling to balance work and life commitments with their caring roles. So we are really grateful to companies like NRS Healthcare whose support means we are able to continue our work to identify and support UK carers."
