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.
Carers Trust is thrilled that Her Majesty The Queen and Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal joined four carers and our CEO, Gareth Howells, in a very special video call to mark Carers Week.
Find out about our new survey and help encourage young and young adult carers to complete it.
Please help support unpaid carers through the Coronavirus crisis by donating to our Carers Emergency Fund.
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.
Carers Trust are thrilled with news that we have been awarded £500,000 by the UK Government’s Loneliness Fund to support unpaid carers.11th June 2020

In this blog written for Carers Week, CEO of Carers Trust, Gareth Howells, lifts the lid on how unpaid carers are driven to financial hardship and mental despair because they are all too often forgotten and taken for granted.
A donation to Carers Trust allows us to reach more of the UK’s hidden carers and provide the support they need to care for the people they love.
