Britain’s Best Breakfast

Put the kettle on, turn on the toaster… it’s time for breakfast with the return of Britain’s Best Breakfast

Carers Trust, the largest charity for unpaid carers is calling for everybody to wake up to the realities of caring by signing up to its biggest national fundraising campaign to help support the UK’s seven million unpaid carers.

All you need to do is hold a breakfast event anytime from September 14th and donate to Carers Trust. Whether it’s tea and toast with some work colleagues, cereal at the school breakfast club or a fry up with the family.

The charity wants to raise money to support all unpaid carers and give them a break from their caring role through its network of carer centres and schemes.

One in 10 of us is a carer and three in five of us will become a carer at some point in our lives. Most all of us will know a carer.

Carers often work around the clock without a break. Many tell us they often don’t have time for breakfast. With your help, Carers Trust can help ease the pressure on those that care unpaid, and provide them with support and advice,” explained Gail Scott-Spicer, Chief Executive Carers Trust.

Carers Trust

Carers Trust is a major new charity for, with and about carers. We work to improve support, services and recognition for anyone living with the challenges of caring, unpaid, for a family member or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or addiction problems.

We do this with a UK wide network of quality assured independent partners, through our unique online services and through the provision of grants to help carers get the extra help they need to live their own lives. With locally based Network Partners we are able to support carers in their homes through the provision of replacement care, and in the community with information, advice, emotional support, hands on practical help and access to much needed breaks. We offer specialist services for carers of people of all ages and conditions and a range of individual tailored support and group activities.

Our vision is of a world where the role and contribution of unpaid carers is recognised and they have access to the trusted quality support and services they need to live their own lives

There are seven million carers in the UK – seven million reasons to care and to get involved. For further information about your nearest service, visit
