MYTIME CEO Krista Community Hero of the Year JustGiving

The prestigious award was presented to Krista at the Just Giving Awards ceremony held at the end of September in London, where she was celebrated for her unwavering commitment to making a difference in the lives of young carers and their families.

The Just Giving Community Hero of the Year Award is a testament to Krista's efforts to raise awareness and provide vital support to young carers who often go unnoticed in our communities. MYTIME Young Carers, under Krista's leadership, has been at the forefront of advocacy and support for young carers, offering a lifeline to those who shoulder the responsibilities of caring for a family member with a disability, illness, or other challenges.

As CEO, Krista has led the charity through a period of growth and innovation, expanding its reach and impact. Under her guidance, MYTIME Young Carers has launched numerous programs and initiatives that provide opportunities, education, and emotional support to young carers, empowering them to pursue their dreams and live fulfilling lives.

Receiving the Just Giving Community Hero of the Year Award is a well-deserved honour for Krista, who has led to raise funds, engage volunteers, and collaborate with partners to ensure that young carers receive the support and recognition they deserve. Her leadership has not only transformed MYTIME Young Carers into a nationally recognised charity but has also touched the lives of countless young carers and their families.

Krista Sharp expressed her gratitude for the recognition, saying, " I am deeply humbled to receive the Just Giving Community Hero of the Year Award and felt even more humbled hearing the stories of all the other nominees and winners. There are so many beautiful humans out there trying to make the world a better place and it was an honour to stand alongside them. I truly have the best job in the world and feel so lucky to work with the best team. This honour also belongs to every young carer who inspires us with their strength and resilience.”

Everyone at MYTIME Young Carers extends their heartfelt congratulations to Krista Sharp on this remarkable achievement. The award not only acknowledges her exceptional leadership but also shines a spotlight on the critical work being done to support young carers.
