There are an estimated 7 million unpaid carers in the UK today, saving the economy £132 billion every year.
Caring can put strain on relationships and can result in isolation and loneliness as well as having an impact on finances. All too often carers let their own health suffer so that they can take care of their loved one.
Carers Trust supports over 500,000 carers, working with our 138 Network Partners around the UK. We offer carers of all ages emotional, practical and financial support as well as campaigning for carers rights and delivering programmes to support carers from young carers in schools to older carers suffering from bereavement.
