There is one very simple ingredient which allows our work to continue – YOU!
We receive no government funding towards our activities. The only thing keeping our support for young carers going is the kindness and generosity of our supporters, whether it’s money raised from a local bake sale, an office doing a 10k together, or a formal grant from a charitable foundation.
Many of our children have little place else to turn. Through our long-term programme of respite breaks and outreach support, they can build life skills, make friends, and most importantly create happy childhood memories away from what can be a difficult home life.
So thank you for your support. We raise a little over a million each year to support young carers aged as young as 5 all the way up to their 12th birthday. A million pounds is a lot of money, but with a bit of help from a lot of people, we can give our children the chance at childhood they deserve.
