OUR GOALS ARE AMBITIOUS - WE WANT TO LEVEL THE PLAYING FIELD FOR YOUNG CARERS EVERYWHERE, AND WE WON'T REST UNTIL WE HAVE
Leaving a gift to MYTIME in your will ensures that young carers get the support they deserve. Some of our biggest donations have been from supporters who have left a gift in their will.
Sadie is twelve years old. Her mum is sick, her dad’s not around, and it’s Sadie’s job to look after her mum and little brother. At home, she does almost all the housework. At school, she’s usually too tired and stressed to concentrate. She’s often picked on because the other children see that there’s something different about her, and there’s no one to turn to for help.
Nobody knows that Sadie’s a young carer.
She doesn't even realise it herself.
A young carer is a child, just like any other. The only difference is that young carers are responsible for the care of at least one member of their family, though they may be as young as 5 years old themselves. These children work incredibly hard to take care of their loved ones, yet they represent a largely forgotten community, and often face enormous disadvantage as a result.
By leaving a gift in your will, you'll enable us to identify and support amazing young carers just like Sadie, for generations to come.
