We work to transform the lives of unpaid carers through collaboration, influence, evidence and innovation.
Unpaid carers in the UK have told us that they feel ignored by successive governments. Moreover, local carer organisations are too often working in highly challenging operating environments. That is why we are committed to speaking truth to power, engaging with key
decision-makers and influencers across the UK to bring about the changes needed to transform the lives of unpaid carers.
We are excited to launch our Young Carers Futures hub page where young carers can sign up to development and training sessions, virtually and in person, and find out about employment opportunities.
Carer involvement at Carers Trust means working with people from the many diverse communities who make up the millions of unpaid carers across the UK.
Making Carers Count is a multi-partner programme aiming to identify and support carers who are under-represented amongst the community groups we currently reach and who have been disproportionately affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Carers Trust provides secretariat support to the APPG for Young Carers and Young Adult Carers. Find out more
Alongside our work in England, we have specialist teams in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland working to improve support and services for unpaid carers.
