Christmas is awesome

We have been super busy here over the past couple of weeks delivering hundreds of presents and hampers to all our young carers and their families. The gifts were kindly donated by the Department of Work and Pensions & Ashville Pre-prep school and were super awesome and thoughtful. In total there were around 100 hampers and 300 gifts! Our young carers couldn’t believe their eyes when they saw all the treats which were wrapped up just for them. We have been generously supported by DWP for 10 years and Ashville Pre Prep for 5 Years, thank you to both of you..YOU.ARE.AWESOME!

Skipton Self Drive is Awesome

A BIG thank you to Skipton Self Drive for providing discounted van and minibus hire in support of Craven Young Carers.

Pudsey is Awesome

Due to a very generous donation of two free tickets to Children in need. One of our Young Carers was able to attend the Children in need live show on Friday 18th November. This was a truly amazing experience for her  and a well deserved break from her caring role.


Harry is Awesome

Harry is one of our very dedicated Young Carers who is giving up his precious time to support Young Carers aged 7-11 years at the BUDZ youth club. His help has been vital in maintaining the BUDZ youth club. All the children love his positive attitude and amazing parachute games. Thank you Harry, you are a star!!
