We do not hold this information centrally. However, some local authorities and general practitioners may maintain their own registers of carers.

In 2011-12, we provided up to £1 million funding to the Royal College of General Practitioners, Carers UK and the Carers Trust (formerly Princess Royal Trust for Carers/Crossroads Care) to take forward a range of initiatives to increase awareness in primary health care of carers of all ages, including young carers.
