The Carers Trust – If you are someone who, without payment, does what needs to be done to maintain the quality of life for a relative, neighbour or friend who could not manage otherwise because of frailty, illness or disability then you are a carer.
The Carers Trust has been specifically set up to offer help, advice and support to all carers regardless of their circumstances.
From the Carers Trust Website:
“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.
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 our Network Partners, we aim to ensure that information, advice and practical support are available to all carers across the UK.”
