Supporting MYTIME Young Carers


Supporting MYTIME Young Carers

We’re proud to announce our latest charity sponsor – MYTIME Young Carers. In our founder, James’s words, “ giving something back to such deserving children is an honour, and we feel incredibly fortunate to be given the opportunity to work with a local company whereby we get to hear about all the amazing work they do’’. We are looking forward to this partnership that will benefit vulnerable young people in Poole.

MYTIME Young Carers exists to level the playing field for young carers and young adult carers of ages 5-25, by providing them with the support, opportunities and friendship that every child needs. In the UK, there are an estimated 700,000 young carers, yet only 166,000 are registered as such. This means that the vast majority are facing the challenges of caring for a vulnerable relative, without support from their school or local authority. It also means that the scale and nature of the challenges young carers face are often underestimated and misunderstood. It is MYTIME’s aim to help young carers overcome these challenges and to create a society that is more aware, inclusive and supportive of young carers.

Quote from Krista Sharp – CEO:

We are incredibly grateful to James and JRS Training for their exceptionally generous donation. With the donation JRS has made, we can take 40 young carers on one of our Making Memories days out. These days give them young carers the chance to take a break from their caring responsibility and have some fun with other young people who are experiencing the same things they are. Want to get involved and support young carers?
