OUR OUTDOOR CENTRE at Worth Matravers in Dorset gives OUR YOUNG CARERS somewhere fun, safe and secluded to escape to. By booking your own break there you'll be helping us to bring young carers from all over the south to be with others like them. Giving them time to be young and be free.
Anyone can stay in our Outdoor Centre on the Jurassic Coast in beautiful Dorset! It sleeps 10-24 in bedrooms/dorms, we can also accomodate 16 camping on-site. Ideal for groups, schools, families, anyone wanting to spend time in a beautiful rural setting. You can even bring a couple of dogs!
There are over 500,000 young carers in the UK taking responsibility for the care of a loved-one. MyTIME is dedicated to offering young carers a break and the support that they need. We primarily work with groups from Dorset and Hampshire, although we already support groups from London.
THE SHOCKING REALITY. One in 12 secondary school pupils in the UK are a young carer, the average age is 12 yet many will have started caring for a loved one when they were as young as five years old. This army of young people are often invisible and vulnerable, many will will suffer physical and mental illness as a consequence of the burden they carry. 13,000 will care for more than 50 hours a week.
They are a growing group that deserve to be recognised, supported and loved - they perform heroic deeds every day. MyTIME are determined to give them a voice, some help and a break. They are chidren, they are entitled to friendship, fun and freedom.

We rely on donations and support from the local community to deliver our young carers' breaks.
There's always lots going on at MyTIME with the Centre, with our young carers and in the news.
