All of our services and support for carers are provided free. We rely on the support of a variety of funders (you can see who these are in our annual reports) and we need the support of generous, thoughtful and committed donors like you. You can join one of our organised events, organise your own events or you may have your own idea. If you’d like to fundraise for Carers Link please get in touch by emailing: enquiry@carerslink or calling 0800 975 2131

Be sponsored to do something

- Carers Link is the first charity on the West Highland Way. Why not walk all, or even part of it?
- Run in a half marathon, 10k or 5k.
- Give up chocolate, shave your head, wash cars.
Whatever you do you can be sponsored to do it. If you know someone who is going to walk or run in an organised event, please ask them if they would consider being sponsored for Carers Link.
