BBC Children in Need

We have received funding for the past six years from BBC Children in Need to employ a dedicated young carer worker in Medway. They run a programme of community based and digital 1-1 sessions and activities enabling young carers to access personalised support. 

The funding is helping to reduce young carers feelings of loneliness, provide opportunities that non-carers enjoy, improve physical health and emotional wellbeing and boost resilience to better support then in their caring role.

BBC Children in Need Carers First Young Carers Project

BBC Children in Need is committed to improving the lives of those children and young people who need it most by supporting projects like Carers First Young Carers project, which work locally to make real and lasting changes to young lives.
