We are a charity that cares for young carers, providing respite breaks; enabling time and adventure at our outdoor centre in the Purbecks, along the beautiful Jurassic Coastline.
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.
MyTIME provides valuable respite breaks for young carers aged 11-18 at our outdoor centre in Worth Matravers in the Isle of Purbeck.
“It was nice to get away from home because it gave me a break from my responsibilities and I got to make new friends and catch up with some old ones”
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!
Young carers say they miss out on what other children their age are doing, because of their caring role. Carers Trust.
Carers aged 16-19 are less likely to be in education, employment or training. (Source Census 2011/13, Office for National Statistics.)
Our long term aim is to support and guide them back in to education and on towards employment and training; changing young people's lives for many years to come!
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 swim to a cake sale in your school.
