Carers TrustJune 5 2014
Carers Trust works 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. The charity aims to ensure that information, advice and practical support are available to all carers across the UK.
Together with Network Partners, the charity provides access to desperately-needed breaks, information and advice, education, training and employment opportunities. Network Partners benefit from the provision of grants, advice documents and reports to improve carers’ services.
Carers Trust gives carers and young carers avenues to speak to someone and make their voices heard, offline via carers’ services and young carers’ schemes and online via interactive websites.
