Make a difference to the lives of unpaid carers across Wiltshire.
Fundraise or donate to our NEW CARING BEYOND COVID Appeal
Coronavirus has had untold implications on unpaid carers who have found themselves at the forefront of the COVID pandemic.
Most of us have found the current coronavirus situation hard, having to isolate ourselves from family and friends. But for unpaid carers, this can be their normal, and may carry on for much longer after things go back to normal for the rest of us.
Carers UK shockingly found that 40% of carers haven’t taken a day off their caring role in over a year.
Find out more about our appeal and how to get involved to help carers across Wiltshire.

200 Club Lottery
Our 200 Club is a mini lottery draw held every month with half the takings going to us at Carer Support Wiltshire to help support unpaid carers, and the other half being given out as cash prizes. It’s a fun and easy way to help us raise money and support even more carers.
How it works:
- Each lottery entry costs £5 which buys you a unique number for the monthly draw. You can buy more than one ticket to increase your chances of winning.
- Every month three lucky winners will be picked:
First prize = 30% of that month’s takings
Second prize = 15%
Third prize = 5%
- We will contact the winners to tell them the good news!
