Each year, MyTIME caters for many young carers from the South West and South East of England.
They are less likely to be in education, employment or training between the ages of 16 and 19. (Source Census 2011/13, Office for National Statistics).
We aim eventually to extend our services to other areas of the UK as we grow.
Our intention is to help support young carers back into education and then on towards employment and training and create a difference outcome.
By giving them a break from their full time caring responsibilities, we help them to find time to make better choices, feel loved and valued by society.
"Just a quick note to say thanks very much for the residential over Easter – the kids had a fantastic time and it was a great opportunity for them to relax and make new friends in similar situations". Sue Ward New Forest Young Carers.
We must raise all year around to provide our services - for which we receive no direct government funding.
Could you help us improve the lives of young carers? Please get involved and support them.
