The donations Telford & Wrekin Young Carers
receive are really crucial to us carrying on our work with young carers in the borough - and we rely on generous individuals and organisations carrying out all sorts of fundraising activities to help cover all the costs of running the service we provide.
We welcome even the smallest donation from people who care about what we do. Every pound is important. Through the Young Carers Forum the young carers themselves always have a big say in how they would like the gift spent, so you can be sure it's going where it's most appreciated.
Being chosen for support by groups and businesses, in the short or long term, raises the fundraiser's profile and also awareness of what young carers do. We know from feedback that the organisations who donate are committed to the service we provide and get a great deal of satisfaction from supporting us support the carers.
Young carers deserve the financial help you give. They carry out their difficult role - most of the time without question or complaint - with continuing unconditional love and dedication.
By making a donation, it means we will always be there for the young carers of Telford.
Over the last 7 years we have visited many organisations who want to help support young carers and fundraise for them.
We often take a young carer with us who will talk about their role of looking after mum, dad, brother, sister or grandparent.
Would you like us to visit your group or business? If so call or email us to arrange a mutually convenient time and date.
