5 Things you can do to support MYTime Young Carers
MYTime is dedicated to providing young carers with the
support, friendship and opportunities that every child deserves.
Your support and generosity is invaluable to us, it is what keeps us going! There are many ways you can help
MYTime especially right now as we develop MYTime @ Home AND build our own MYTime Memories Making App.
For 'Charity Tuesday' we've compiled a list of 5 easy ways you can help MYTime today.
MYTime is a charity, and that means we depend on the support of our local
community. We are always looking for opportunities to fundraise ourselves, but love nothing
more than when a company, individual or group of friends choose to do their bit to raise
money on our behalf. Take part in a sponsored silence, organise an event, or if you’re feeling
really crazy, sign up for a skydive! Do something meaningful, feel great about yourself and
make a whole lot of difference to us and to young carers everywhere.
2. Spread the word.
A young carer’s role is often misunderstood, overlooked or even belittled.
We aim to raise awareness of the incredible job that young carers do and to reinvent the
perceptions that many people hold of young carers. We’re asking you to get talking. Talk
about young carers, talk about their selflessness and compassion, and talk about us too! The
world needs to hear about the work we do. The higher our profile, the greater the impact
we’ll be able to make! Share this, it will help raise awareness and highlight how people can
help young carers during COVID-19 and beyond.
3. Get involved with our employability programme.
Launching this year, this programme is designed to support young adult
carers of ages 18-25 into work or further education. We’re
looking for local businesses to help inspire and prepare young carers for the
working world. Are you in a position to offer a work experience placement?
Act as a mentor? Host a workshop? Then we’d love to hear from you!
4. Make a donation.
We rely on the generosity and kindness of our local community. Every
donation we receive goes directly towards our mission to provide young carers with the
support, opportunities and friendship that we believe all children deserve. No amount is too
small to make a difference, so you’re sure to be doing something truly amazing when you
give what you can spare.
