Carers Trust works to help improve the lives of unpaid carers as a leading UK charity that partners with over 120 local carer organisations to provide financial, practical and emotional support.
Charitable activities include unpaid carers being provided breaks from their long hours consistently spent caring, raising awareness of unpaid carer issues, producing evidence-based reports, influencing policy and much more.
Carers Trust has been caring for carers for 50 years. The aim throughout history has been for unpaid carers to be heard and valued as well as have access to support, advice and resources to enable them to live fulfilled lives.
Carers Trust and the PFA Awards are both celebrating 50 years since their inception, and Carers Trust is incredibly proud to be an editorial partner of 50 Years of the PFA Awards.
The prestigious awards are widely recognised at the most coveted individual prize in English football and the big anniversary promises to make it a special night remembering the incredible moments in English football over the last 50 years. As a brand showcased in 50 Years of the PFA Awards, we would like to shine a light on one of the groups of people in the UK most in need of support, unpaid carers.
Carers Trust has partnered with a wide range of large organisations and big names such as Surrey Cricket Club, The Jockey Club and record-breaking cyclist Mark Beaumont.
Surrey County Cricket Club provided young carers and adult carers days out at The Oval allowing unpaid carers much-needed respite from their constant caring role. Find out more about the young carers day out at The Oval.
Carers Trust was the official charity partner of The Jockey Club, the home of 15 British racecourses. The partnership produced many successful fundraising events such as sponsored runs as well as raising awareness of unpaid carer challenges at their top racecourses including Cheltenham and Aintree.
Carers Trust partnered with record-breaking long-distance cyclist Mark Beaumont who supported one of Carers Trust’s biggest fundraising events in recent years with Bolton businessman Andrew Crompton's Manchester to Melbourne cycling challenge which raised over £150,000 for unpaid carers.
