We take our hats off to young carers. Some of us take our hair off too!
YOUNG CARERS WORK INCREDIBLY HARD TO TAKE CARE OF THEIR FAMILIES, DAY IN AND DAY OUT, SOMETIMES AT GREAT PERSONAL COST
That’s why once a year, we invite the whole community – and schools in particular – to unite to recognise, celebrate and show some appreciation for these remarkable young people.
How will you wear your hair to show you care?
Taking part is super simple. The only question is, how will you wear your hair to show you care?
We’re thinking funky colours, crazy wigs, sponsored shaves… the bolder, the better!

Young carers often tell us that they feel invisible. MYTIME's Hair2Care campaign creates the perfect opportunity to show young carers that they're seen, that they're valued and that they haven't been forgotten about.
Don’t forget to upload your selfies to social media using the hashtag #hair2care, where young carers all over the UK can see them.

It's time to show us your craziest wackiest hairstyles in support of young carers!
If you are a school and have an inset day, don’t worry – you needn’t miss out! We’d love you to take part on February 16th instead.
All that matters is that you care, and you show it, so earmark the date in your diaries now.
How To Take Part
Taking part is easy! Follow these simple steps and create an impression with a silly hairstyle!
