Supporting young carers across the UK

Many of us will feel stressed and overwhelmed at times, whether it’s a busy period at work or dealing with daily chores at home.

For young carers though, life can often feel like the constant spinning of plates, with cooking, cleaning and schoolwork all on top of caring for a family member.

That’s why the charities and projects you help to fund are so vital.

Not only do young carers get the chance to have some time away, they can also share and learn to manage feelings of worry, anxiety and stress with peers and project workers who understand what they’re going through.
