Young carers deserve the best start in life we can give them.
We believe in empowering young carers and supporting them with the tools to succeed in their chosen studies and career - enabling no limit to what a young carer can achieve.
A young carer misses on average 48 days in the school year due to their caring role.
At YCDT we unlock potential, support education and nurture the development of young carers skills and talents. We cannot do this alone. The charity receives no statutory funding and therefore fundraises for 100% of our income.
With your support the Young Carers Development Trust can support a greater number of young carers and young adult carers. Every donation goes directly towards the services we provide for these children and young people. A young carer is three times as likely to be ‘not in education, employment or training’ (NEET).
Whether you would like to fundraise, volunteer, make a donation or campaign, we would love to hear from you. For further information about getting involved please contact Karina Eccles: [email protected], 07368 366660
