Make a difference to the lives of carers

Without the kindness of our donors, supporters and volunteers, we wouldn’t be here when families need us most.

The number of people providing care is growing and many carers are reaching breaking point as a result of the pandemic. By donating your money, volunteering your time or raising awareness of our work, you’ll be making a difference to the thousands of unpaid carers in our area.

Impact of the pandemic on carers

Increase in carers

There are an estimated 13.6 million carers caring through the pandemic

Increase in hours caring

4 in 5 carers provided more care than before the pandemic

Decrease in wellbeing

64% of carers said their mental health had worsened

During the last year we have faced challenges like never before.
We have supported more than double the number of carers than in the previous year,
and we have developed new ways to reach and support those struggling during the pandemic.

Why we need your support

Your support means we can continue to help families across Bath and North East Somerset when they need us most.
See your impact.
