Pledge of 1,000 free nights to UK Carers

Ongoing competition giveaways to champion and reward care workers, family caregivers and unpaid carers.

Our Mission

Nights on Lottie was created to celebrate UK carers (both paid and unpaid) and to say a heartfelt thank you for the incredible work they do every day.

We hope Nights on Lottie will inspire more recognition for carers. We also want to contribute towards meaningful long-term change, including the government providing additional funding support to caregivers and the mental and physical health of carers being better looked after.

While Nights on Lottie will not solve the ongoing problem, we hope our giveaways provide an opportunity of celebration for UK cares, while also providing a moment of rest and recharge to the giveaway winners.

Recent Giveaway

We kickstarted our Nights on Lottie pledge with a Christmas and New Year's Special. Lottie partnered with Unplugged to give carers a chance to relax and unwind by gifting 33 winners a free 3-night stay at a beautiful countryside cabin of their choice.

The winners were chosen at random and were able to book their three-night stay at one of Unplugged's cabin using a unique code and on any date in 2023, to rest and recharge at a time convenient to them.

While sadly not every carer could be a winner of the Christmas giveaway, we're already in the process of organising the next Nights on Lottie, as part of our wider 1,000 free nights pledge.

Support Services for Carers

If you're struggling, here's where to seek financial, practical, and emotional support from.

Financial

Right now, the UK is facing a cost-of-living-crisis that's affecting everyone. If you're a carer or care worker and you're struggling, you're not alone. There is financial support available from a range of organisations.

Practical

Juggling care responsibilities and work or family commitments can be incredibly overwhelming. If you're finding it tough to care for a family member, or you're struggling with work, it's important to seek support.

Emotional

Working or providing care is rewarding, but can be challenging. It's more important than ever before to prioritise your mental health. From support from MIND to REThink, it's time to focus on you.
