How Donations Help As a charity, we rely on your support to supplement our core income so that we can provide a bespoke service to unpaid carers. Being a carer can mean being on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Leaving little time for a social life, making maintaining employment or keeping up with education difficult. Many carers face financial hardship and severe social isolation. Yet, we find that most carers want to continue providing care. They are not looking for a way out or to pass their responsibilities on to someone else. They often want to be listened to and heard, to know they are not alone, have some to turn to for information, to have the occasional day or few hours off or just simply be themselves. "The demand for our services increases every year and we want to support any and every carer who needs our help."
