Donate clothes - Carers UK


Believe it or not, every 15 seconds someone in the UK becomes a carer.


Every one of us will look after an elderly relative, sick partner or a disabled family member. Caring is part of life but without the right support the personal costs of caring can be high.


There are 6 million carers in the UK, one in seven people combine work and caring. The care that they provide saves the nation £119 billion every year.


When caring affects you and your family, Carers UK is here to provide the support and advice you need.


We help carers:

  • Get the best for the person they care for
  • Make the most of their income and stay in paid work
  • Juggle their busy lives and keep healthy
  • Provide a listening ear
  • Campaign for a better life for carers


By making a donation to Carers UK you can help us support even more carers in need:

  • £5 could change a life, by letting us answer an email from someone finding it difficult to pick up the telephone.
  • £7.50 could help us to identify new carers and direct them to sources of support early in their caring journey.
  • £10 could answer a call from a carer in desperate need of financial advice. On average, each phone call saves a carer £48.52 a week.
