Funding for Own Zone Needed

Young Carers Bucks, the charity which supports young carers aged 6 – 18 years, is looking to raise vital funds of £15,000 for the provision of a dedicated ‘Own Zone’ space at its head office in Aylesbury. This dedicated room is used by young carers for workshops,
activities and support groups run by Young Carers Bucks, and provides a safe
environment to meet staff and have some time away from their caring roles. The lease on the ‘Own Zone’ space costs £15,000 each year, funds which Carers Bucks must raise each year to keep the room for Young Carers.

Young Carers Bucks currently supports in excess of 700 young carers across Bucks and provides support such as regular clubs and activities, one-to-one support where needed, someone to talk to who understands, support in schools and gives young carers the
opportunity to meet others in a similar situation to themselves. The ‘Own Zone’ allows Young Carers Bucks to carry out their support and gives young carers a chance to be children again, giving them a break from their caring role.
