MYTIME IS A DYNAMIC, AMBITIOUS AND RAPIDLY-GROWING CHARITY, BUT WE CANNOT ACHIEVE OUR GOALS ALONE
We rely on our dedicated ambassadors to help raise MYTIME's profile and support our growth. MYTIME ambassadors act as representatives and spokespeople for the charity, raising awareness of our work and cause at every opportunity. They champion the interests of young carers, they actively encourage their communities and peers to support MYTIME and they give generously of their time and expertise.
Ambassadors help us to raise our profile amongst audiences we might otherwise struggle to reach
They use their status and influence within their own networks to help us achieve our strategic goals, and create extensive awareness of young carers at all levels of government and society. Ultimately, our ambassadors help to accelerate meaningful change for young carers.
Emberly is the youngest ambassador for MYTIME Young Carers. A young carer herself, Emberly has been a fierce advocate for MYTIME since she started accessing the charity’s services in 2020. Although she is one of the youngest children MYTIME support, Emberly is one of the most outspoken advocates for the charity. After finding out that MYTIME’s work relies on donations and becoming concerned the support they give her and others in her situation may stop, Emberly was inspired to start a campaign to raise money for the weekly Zoom meetings and activity days she loves so much, by taking on a four-hour dance-a-thon.
Emberly became a young carer when her mum fell ill and needed support, taking on so much for someone so young. Emberly says that ‘MYTIME helps me when I have struggles and worries about my mummy. The making memory days and Zoom meetings make me feel very happy, relaxed and calm and it helps because I am always a little bit worried about Mummy. We need to fundraise, because if MYTIME run out of money, the Zoom meetings for all the young carers can’t happen anymore. Young carers need Zoom meetings to look after their mummies, learn how to do things and calm down.’
Meet James Isaac
Co-Founder & Group Fitness Instructor
E-Motion Fitness Hub
Having started his career as a personal trainer in 2013, James has helped hundreds to grow, develop and achieve their personal goals over the years. In 2017, his powerful ambition to be able to support thousands more led him to co-found E-motion Fitness Hub in Poole. Today, as co-owner and head coach here, James demonstrates his passion for fitness, mental health and community every day.
James first became involved with MYTIME when he volunteered to deliver a fun fitness class through MYTIME's Zoom Youth Group during the UK's first national lockdown in 2020. James states that, "After meeting some of the carers, it really hit home how resilient, hard working and amazing these young people are. It then became apparent that MYTIME's community was a perfect fit with E-Motion's."
Since then, James and the whole community at E-motion Fitness Hub have gone above and beyond to support MYTIME. By volunteering time to deliver activities for young carers and by throwing themselves whole-heartedly into fundraising challenges for the charity, James and the E-motion team have demonstrated incredible commitment to MYTIME's cause, time and time again. James says, "As an ambassador, I hope to help MYTIME's mission and vision of providing young carers with further opportunities through support and friendship."
