The Network in Wales
The Network in Wales
Together with our Network Partners we support the consistent delivery of good quality services for carers across Wales and ensuring the sustainability of these services.
By working collaboratively, we inform and influence local organisations and decision makers who have the power to improve support for unpaid carers locally, regionally and nationally.
Through our network we also distribute a series of community and individual grants for carers, which can help with home repairs, replacement care, respite and other costs relating to your caring role. Last year we made £32,476.87 available to support them.

Joint statement: Carers Trust and Carers Trust South East Wales
14 February 2022
The Carers Trust Network supports unpaid carers locally through a unique collaboration of expert carers services, known as Carers Trust Network Partners.
As of 1 April 2022, Carers Trust South East Wales is not renewing its membership with Carers Trust and will no longer be part of the Carers Trust Network in Wales. The decision has been made following discussions between Carers Trust South East Wales and Carers Trust at a Wales and UK level.
From 1 April 2022 Carers Trust South East Wales will operate under a new name, which it is currently consulting on. This change will not be to the detriment of the support the organisation provides to carers.
The organisation will continue to provide the support and services to unpaid carers in Blaenau Gwent, Bridgend, Caerphilly, Cardiff, Merthyr Tydfil, Monmouthshire, Newport, Rhondda Cynon Taf, Torfaen and Vale of Glamorgan currently operated by Carers Trust South East Wales.
Carers Trust, as a national network, will continue to support and advocate for unpaid carers across all regions of Wales, including those in central and southeast Wales, by working collaboratively with Network Partners and organisations supporting carers across the region. Carers Trust Wales’ national programmes and advocacy work will maintain their Wales-wide reach.
Ensuring that unpaid carers across the region are able to access the support they need to achieve what matters to them remains both organisations’ shared ongoing priority. We will continue to work constructively towards this aim.

About Carers Trust
Carers Trust is a major charity for, with and about carers. We work to improve support, services and recognition for anyone living with the challenges of caring, unpaid, for a family member or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or addiction problems. www.carers.org
We do this with a UK wide network of quality assured independent partners and through the provision of grants to help carers get the extra help they need to live their own lives. With locally based Network Partners we are able to support carers in their homes through the provision of replacement care, and in the community with information, advice, emotional support, hands on practical help and access to much needed breaks. We offer specialist services for carers of people of all ages and conditions and a range of individual tailored support and group activities.
Our vision is that unpaid carers count and can access the help they need to live their lives.
