Fundraising


As a registered charity we rely on funding and donations to ensure we can continue to support as many unpaid carers as possible. Without your support we wouldn’t be able to do what we do.

Making a donation can help us fund much needed respite for unpaid carers to do the things they enjoy so they can recharge and not hit breaking point. Carers, both young and old, are extremely worthy of the financial help you give. They carry out their difficult role – most of the time without question or complaint – with continuing unconditional love and dedication.

By making a donation, it means we will always be there for all carers in Wigan.
