Thank you for your interest in supporting YSS.

Thank you  to all our very generous donors, contributing to £10211.64 during 2015  for Worcestershire Young Carers and Young Adult Carers:

A huge thank you to all for supporting Worcestershire Young Carers.

Currently YSS are actively looking for donations and fundraising to support WYC. One of our biggest on-going costs is for running monthly clubs and providing  a range of activities specifically for Young Carers and Young Adult Carers. Through clubs we currently support over 160 young carers each month.  Clubs are held every month and young people are transported (usually by taxi) to the club for a chance  to have some much needed time out and respite from their caring duties. This allows them an opportunity to relax and just be a young person, an opportunity that they might not otherwise have.If you wish to read more about the work of the WYC team please click here.

Throughout the year  a wide variety of additional activities  are organised and it is for these in particular that we are always seeking further funding. This could be a trip to the sea-side, a visit to a festival, or a daytrip.

Thank  you for all the generous donations:  these are some examples from the past 12 months:

You could choose to support through either:

  • Individual Donations- please click DONATE ONLINE at the base of any page. This will take you to the YSS page on the MyDonate website. YSS choose this charity donation site, after comparison with other similar sites, as it maximizes  the donation reaching YSS, and takes only a small administration fee  from the donation,if you are eligible for gift aid. (MyDonate is a charity itself.)
  • Fundraising – we have had individuals  running marathons, organising cake stalls, lunches and dinners and even climbing mountains to raise funds for us. For example a former member of staff raised £400 from her  half marathon  run.  Fund raisers have raised from £50 upwards and every penny raised goes directly to support your chosen project. We are very grateful for all amounts no matter how small.

If you are interested in fundraising  or  in supporting us as an individual or as a company , please contact Senior Key worker  Neil Phillips,  on neil.phillips@yss.org.uk or Ann Constable directly on 07785 619887 or email ann.constable@yss.org.uk
