YSS is a local charity that has been around for over 30 years. Our Worcestershire Young Carers service currently supports over 500 young carers aged 7 to 24. Their caring role is usually for a parent, but could be for a sibling or a grandparent. The caring involved can be varied, ranging from administering medication, to cooking, cleaning and bathing, to helping to parent siblings or providing emotional support.
Being a young carer can have a big impact on so many aspects of growing up; statistically, young carers are more likely to suffer bullying at school, are less likely to stay in education, employment or training and tend to have lower aspirations.
Young carers often have little time for the simple things in life that many other children and young people enjoy such as socialising with friends and day trips out. We want to raise £1,500 to take a group of 40 young carers on a summer trip by coach to the seaside, giving them the opportunity to relax and have fun with their peers, play cricket and have fish and chips on the seafront.
Your support in helping us reach our target is so valuable; together we can help these young carers enjoy a special time outside of their caring role.
Thank you for choosing YSS!
