To be the pre-eminent voice of Young Carers throughout the UK.
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 respite time and adventure breaks at our outdoor centre in the Isle of Purbeck. We are part of Purbeck history as an old 1940's Radar Station.
To champion the cause of Young Carers and demonstrate that society values and cares for each individual; by providing a bespoke range of support, education and respite services.
Our long-term aim is to support and guide them back in to education and on towards employment and training; so they can continue to care for the ones who depend on them!
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.
In our Zipwire Challenge from Bournemouth Pier. Come take the plunge!
