Groups and clubs

Whether you are in a sports team, Rotary Group, Women’s Institute or local choir there are lots of fantastic ways you can come together to support carers.


Hosting a fundraising event is a great way to build connections in your local community, raising vital funds and awareness so that together we can help make life better for carers.

Don’t let your creativity hold you back. We’d love to know what you have planned so that we can guide and support you ensuring you  get the most out of the experience. We can even supply you with t-shirts, collection boxes and poster templates. 

Get in touch and let us know your plans 

Need some inspiration? Head to our fundraising ideas and tips page to get started. 


Does your group have a Charity of the Year? We would love you to nominate Carers UK.  

If you choose us as your Charity of the Year, any money you raise will help us to reach the 6000 people who become a carer every day.  

Speak to our Community and Events Fundraising Officer who is on hand to help you with any support you need.
