Children In Need Grant

Carers First is delighted to have been awarded a three-year grant of £110,235 to provide information and support to young carers in Medway who support family members who need help through ill health, frailty, disability, mental health or substance misuse.

With funding we can support carers in the community and continue to provide respite care and the provision of information and advice.  

Adam Rowe, Chief Executive at Carers FIRST commented: “Funding from BBC Children in Need allows us to continue to support carers from the age of five upwards in the local area. We are committed to providing a positive experience for both carers and those that they care for and new funding will allow us to continue doing this.”
