MYTIME strives to create a society that's fully aware, genuinely supportive and highly inclusive of young carers
We know that there remains significant work to be done in supporting young carers in the UK, and we understand that nobody knows what kind of support a young carer might need better than young carers themselves.
That’s why we work to provide the platforms from which young carers can make their voices heard. It’s our job to listen to those voices and to amplify them. Our goals are ambitious, but we won’t rest until these become realities.
We aim to:
Raise extensive awareness of young carers and their needs
Improve the lives of young carers through targeted programmes
Be leaders of change, using our expertise and data about the needs of the uk young carers community to guide decision-making and offer an expert voice in the field
Provide a voice for young carers within government and wider society
We are driven by our values, which guide us in all that we do to support the incredible young carers that we work with:
We work relentlessly to elevate the position of young carers across society
We model ourselves on the young carers we serve and operate from a place of kindness, always
We accept responsibility for accelerating meaningful change for young carers and take full ownership of our successes and failures along the way
We believe in collective action, celebrating community over competition
We represent the authentic voice of young carers and stay true to them in everything we do
