For many young carers, Christmas time can mean extra responsibilities. Here are 5 ways you can support young carers right now and help make their Christmas magical.
Get your cards & calendars here
Still looking for the perfect Christmas cards? Our selection includes two designs made specially by the Honeypot children and one festive floral wreath – you can get them on Ebay or at the next Honeypot event! You might also like an advent calendar from Advent of Change, these Christmas pandas from Paperchase or the adorable Willow the owl from Morley’s, all of which donate a percentage of proceeds to Honeypot. Plus if you’re doing your Christmas shopping on Amazon, make us your chosen charity on Amazon Smile and we’ll get a donation every time you shop!
Be inspired at our Carol Concerts
Join Honeypot for a celebratory evening in London’s St Paul’s, Covent Garden (12 Dec) and historic Romsey Abbey in Hampshire (2 Dec) for our annual Carol Concerts! Celebrity readings, top-notch choirs and mince pies and festive drinks are all included – as well as the chance to hear from Honeypot’s young carers themselves. Read more…

Vote for our film It’s About Time featuring Jaiden
We’re in the running for the Charity Film Awards and we need your help! One of the biggest struggles young carers face is the lack of public awareness of what young carers do. If Jaiden’s story wins, we could reach millions more people and make a real difference to young carers’ lives – vote here! Voting closes at midnight on December 1st, so vote now!
Tell your loved ones about young carers
Christmas can be especially difficult for young carers – for many, it means more responsibilities and more stress. By helping to spread awareness, you can help make sure young carers are recognised and can access support. You might also like to keep an eye out in your community for those who are struggling and see how you can help.
