People's Postcode Lottery
Carers Trust is delighted to have the support of the players of People’s Postcode Lottery. Since 2017, players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised over £3,000,000 through the Postcode Care Trust to provide vital support to unpaid carers.
This invaluable support will transform the help we can offer unpaid carers and enable us to kick-start vital projects:
Young Carers Futures
Thanks to support from players, Carers Trust was able to launch a new pilot internship programme for young adult carers. 13 young adult carers across the UK were employed for 12 weeks in a range of different paid roles; including Policy & External Affairs, Fundraising, Grants & Programmes, Communications, and Young & Young Adult Carers. This was designed to help young adult carers understand the workplace, gain experience and skills, and connect with our partners such as People’s Postcode Lottery, as well as other employers on a range of skills development opportunities.
Volunteers from People’s Postcode Lottery delivered workshops to the Interns, supporting in their development.
Since completing their internships, our Interns have gone on to secure employment and freelance work, continued with their education, and started volunteering with other charities.
Celebrating the players of People's Postcode Lottery support
"We are thrilled to be supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery. Three in five of us will become carers and anyone can become a carer at any point in their lives. It’s therefore vital that help and support are available when it is most needed.”
Svetlana Kirov, Executive Director of Fundraising, Carers Trust
“Carers Trust provides vital support to carers and allows them respite in a role that can often be very lonely. I am delighted that funding raised by players of People’s Postcode Lottery is enabling Carers Trust to continue to offer this fantastic service.”
Laura Chow, Head of Charities at People’s Postcode Lottery
