Who are Friends of Young Carers?

(West Berkshire)

Our charity was set up in 2013 to raise awareness of the difficulties faced by Young Carers. Due to their responsibilities at home, Young Carers often miss out on opportunities to play and learn, they can feel under pressure and isolated, and they may struggle with their schoolwork. Your contribution will help us fund a variety of activities, for example: swimming and rugby lessons, first aid courses, judo and a whole range of pure fun events with other children, offering them the chance to experience a more normal childhood.

We are a Registered Charity (Charity Number 1156680) with the aim of raising money and providing for these experiences. We have virtually no overheads, i.e. no administrative staff to pay, no offices to rent, and no utility bills to pay.

The trustees believe that there is huge potential within West Berkshire to make this a very successful venture. We hope that you will follow our progress with interest and make contact should you wish to offer support or simply find out more about us.
