We can make the lives of carers better.

We reduce isolation and stress that many local carers of all ages experience, but government funding covers only a part of our costs, so we need your help. A gift, no matter what size, can make a real difference to a carer’s life.

If you’d like to donate a monthly gift, that would be lovely! It is the best way to support us, it means we can plan ahead better. Thank you!

Your gift could help directly in the following ways:

  • £15 could give a young carer precious time for themselves to relax with others who understand, while taking part in activities ranging from crafts to sport.
  • £20 could go towards palliative care to help the whole family be as normal as possible in a difficult situation – often social services will not be able to respond quickly enough in these situations.
  • £50 could go towards running a group for carers to reduce social isolation and help them know what help is available.
  • £100 could give peace of mind to an anxious carer by going towards a series of counselling sessions.

Don’t forget to Gift Aid it! If you are a taxpayer, your gift is worth 25% more at no extra cost to you. For example, a £20 donation to us would be worth £25.

What you said

  • Before the support from STRIVE, I felt so lost and alone. Battling with Anxiety and Depression myself as well as caring for a loved one at the same time proved to be really hard. Since getting the support from STRIVE, I have made dramatic progress in a short space of time! Through the support on offer I went and saw my GP and got help. Knowing that someone is always there to listen and not judge me really took me to a brighter place and now I’m holding a full-time job and I can leave the house without the fear of being judged or attacked for being me. I am #proudtobe a young carer! Thank you Carers Trust Cambridgeshire for ALL the support over the last year, you have changed my life!
