A report detailing the experiences of unpaid carers and carer service support workers in Scotland, throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The report makes a series of recommendations and suggestions to support carer service support workers as they move out of the crisis phase of the pandemic.
The research illuminates the lived experiences of student carers across Scotland’s colleges and universities, including the perspectives of those supporting them. Through an investigation of the challenges student carers face, and the barriers to accessing support, the research makes recommendations and suggestions to improve the studying experience for carers.
Working for Carers is led by Carers Trust and delivered by its network of partners (local carer organisations) across London. Working for Carers is funded by the European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund. The first phase of the project ran from October 2016 and September 2019 and was evaluated by Ecorys.
These independent evaluations review the successful delivery of the two About Time Grant programmes, Time for Change and Take Action and Support, which addressed the issues that can lead to young adult carers becoming disengaged from society.

Carers Trust Wales are please to launch the new report “Supporting Carers of People Living with Dementia”. This report has been developed as part of our project to increase the identification and support of older carers, in partnership with Age Cymru and funded by Welsh Government.
This report highlights how older parent carers and ageing carers who face additional barriers to accessing services should be supported to prepare for a time when they are less able or unable to provide care. The report is accompanied by resources for commissioners, providers and front line staff to use in the development of support for carers to plan for a future when they are less able or unable to care.
Our Retirement on Hold report highlighted some of the challenges faced by older carers and made recommendations to improve their experience now and in the future.
Carers Trust and the Men's Health Forum carried out research to find out more about the experiences and needs of male carers and to help raise awareness of the fact that male carers may not be getting the support they need.
Young adult carers are disadvantaged in their education, employment and wellbeing. These reports present evidence on the impact of caring unpaid for a family member or friend on the lives of young adult carers, using research carried out by the University of Nottingham. It represents the first large-scale survey of young adult carers aged 14-25. Reports cover England, Scotland and Wales.
