Carers Trust

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. With Network Partners, Carers Trust aims to ensure that information, advice and practical support are available to all carers across the UK.

Carers Trust provides access to desperately-needed breaks, information and advice, education, training and employment opportunities. Carers trust  gives carers and young carers avenues to speak to someone and make their voices heard, offline via the carers' services and young carers' schemes and online via the interactive websites.

Carers Trust is a new charity which was formed by the merger of The Princess Royal Trust for Carers and Crossroads Care in April 2012.
