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. Our vision is that unpaid carers count and can access the help they need to live their lives.
Are you an adult providing unpaid care? Want to help shape future government support for unpaid carers?
Take our survey.
Your gift this Christmas can give a young carer the support they need to reach their future potential.
We're committed to providing opportunities for young and young adult carers to achieve and develop future aspirations and goals through our Young Carers’ Futures programme.
We provide a wealth of information online to help unpaid carers access the support they need.
Locally, our network of partners support carers throughout the UK, giving them access to help, advice and breaks from caring.
