Carers UK is the leading national charity, supporting, advocating for and connecting unpaid carers across the UK.
Unpaid Carers are those providing support for family, friends, relatives or loved ones.
With over 6.5 million unpaid carers in the UK and 6,000 individuals becoming a carer every day the need to support them is growing and urgent. Unpaid carers save the country an estimated £530 million each day and are vital to the friends and family members they support, as well as to the wider community.
COVID-19 has dramatically affected carers across the country. Our recent polling suggests that the figure for unpaid carers could now be as high as 13.6 million, with 4.5 million people starting to care overnight due to the impact on coronavirus on services and individuals.
