Our impact report for 2019/20 is available to read now.
The time for change. In our trustees’ annual report 2018/19 we were not shy about our ambitions to help more carers and the changes that were needed to do so during the year. Because it is urgent. Because the need is growing. And because carers tell us being a carer is really tough.
We know that most carers find themselves in caring roles without choosing to be there and the idea of being able to have a choice in anything, can feel far removed from daily life.
Becoming a carer can happen to anyone at any point in their life. Three in five of us will be a carer at some point. It is often not a role that we choose, and it can turn lives upside down in a heartbeat.
We want to be there to offer the practical and emotional support that they need before, during and after their caring role. We want everyone in our communities to know that they are not alone. That we are all caring together.
Through delivering our strategy of growth, focus and excellence, we have been there. Bringing carers together – together with information and advice, together with services that help and together with each other.
