Carefree use their digital platform to turn vacant and unsold hotel rooms into much-needed holiday accommodation for unpaid carers.

In the UK, 8.8M unpaid carers provide £132bn worth of social care, yet they receive little to no respite. 46% won’t have had a break for 5 years. Carefree has booked 1,750 breaks and supported 6,000 carers in the last year.

The Fore is supporting Carefree to scale and develop the charity. With their intervention, 98% of carers reported improved wellbeing. Our investment will help them towards their goal of ensuring that every full-time unpaid carer has access to a short break.
