The charity works to improve support, services, and recognition for carers. This includes those living with the challenges of providing unpaid care for a family member or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or addiction problems.
Carers Trust works with a UK-wide network of quality-assured independent partners and, through the provision of grants, helps carers get the extra support they need to live their own lives. With these locally-based Network Partners, the charity supports carers in their homes through the provision of replacement care, advice, emotional support, hands-on practical help, and access to much-needed breaks. Carers Trust offers specialist services for carers of people of all ages and conditions, and a range of individually tailored support and group activities.
The charity's vision is that unpaid carers count and can access the help they need to live their lives. For more information, visit the Carers Trust website. To help support their work, sign up to play People's Postcode Lottery.
