The Norfolk Millennium Trust for Carers offers unpaid carers a better quality of life by giving grants for practical items like washing machines and laptops, power packs for wheelchairs and short breaks.

The Norfolk Millennium Trust for Carers aims to offer unpaid carers a better quality of life by giving grants for practical items like washing machines and laptops, power packs for wheelchairs and short breaks. Every year the Trust helps hundreds of carers across the county, young and old alike, from pensioners looking after a disabled spouse to children juggling schoolwork and the needs of a poorly parent.

The Trust was born out of the We Care Appeal, launched through the Eastern Daily Press, in October 1998 after research identified the huge number of unpaid carers and the need to help them. The appeal’s aim was simple – to establish an enduring charitable trust giving financial and practical help to unpaid carers in their crucial and often undervalued roles.

In 2017, Norfolk Community Foundation was appointed to undertake the management and administration of the Norfolk Millennium Trust for Carers.
