We are a charity that cares for young carers, enabling respite, time and adventure breaks; at our outdoor centre in the Isle of Purbeck. We provide essential life skills for young carers; encouraging them to get outdoors, be active, while making new friends!
There are 700,00 young carers in the UK. In 2010 the BBC carried out a survey. One in 12 secondary school pupils are a young carer. These are caring children who are the main carers in their families, looking after a sick or otherwise incapacitated relative (and often siblings) as there is no one else to help them!
MyTIME was reformed in 2013 (formerly known as Poole and Dorset Adventure Club) offering accommodation, time adventure and activities.
We provide valuable respite breaks for young carers. Young carers say they miss out on what other children their age are doing, because of their caring role. Carers Trust.
Fancy being a guest blogger? We are looking for enthusiastic writers to tell their story...
We are based in the heart of the Purbecks! And we love it.
It can be anything from organising a Sponsored run, walk or taking part in our Zipwire Challenge.
