Who is a Carer?
A carer is anyone who cares, unpaid, for a friend or family member who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction cannot cope without their support.
Who are we?
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.
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, practical help and access to breaks. We offer specialist services for carers of people of all ages and conditions and a range of tailored support and activities.
You can find your nearest Carers Trust Network Partner by using our ‘Find local care and carer services’ facility at Carers.org (any time) or calling 0300 772 9600.
