Anyone could be a carer – a 15-year-old girl looking after a parent with an alcohol problem, a 40-year-old man caring for his partner who has terminal cancer, or an 80-year-old woman looking after her husband who has Alzheimer’s disease. Carers Trust works to improve support, services and recognition for anyone living with the challenges of caring, unpaid, for someone who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or addiction problems. With our Network Partners, we aim to ensure that quality assured information, advice and practical support are available to all carers across the UK.
