Trusts and foundations

We would like to thank all the trusts and foundations that support Carers Trust.

Trusts and foundations play a key role in supporting our work, giving us the flexibility to direct funding where it’s needed the most. Your support also allows us to test new interventions for key groups of carers to address their unmet needs. We then share the learning and best practice across our network of local partners and via our national policy work. 

How trusts and foundations can support carers

Two of Carers Trust’s key programmes include Planning for Tomorrow and Young Carers in Schools. These projects would not have seen light without the support of trusts and foundations, and we are extremely grateful to our funders for their support.

Planning for Tomorrow

This project aims to help older carers who are entering a new phase in their caring journey, usually because they are no longer able to care or because the person they have been caring for has died. By delivering a series of workshops and activities, we will increase knowledge and understanding about end-of-life care among older carers, enable them to plan for the future and reduce isolation and anxiety among bereaved older carers.

Young Carers in Schools Ambassadors programme

As part of our successful Young Carers in Schools programme we are working with our network of young carer services to recruit and train parents and young carers to become Young Carers in Schools Ambassadors. Their role will be to work in their local communities to raise greater awareness of young carers and the need to support them in schools.

Our promise to our funders

We value all the grants we receive from our funders. In return, we promise to always be open, honest and accountable to you. 

We will provide timely updates and case studies to report on the impact of your funding and promptly respond to any queries you may have. We can also arrange for you and trustees to meet with our key staff and visit the projects you are funding and will invite you to key events when we think they may be of interest to you.
