We would like to say a HUGE thank you to the staff and students of St Aidan’s school who raised £500 for Young Carers through a non uniform day.

Our young carer, Emily, 16, is awesome. She spoke live on Radio York about being a young carer and the support our service has provided her with. Radio York breakfast presenter Kay Crewdson is running the famous Knaresborough Bed Race with Raworths Solicitors to raise money for our young carers. Thank you Emily for speaking […]

Baking at Betty’s

Thank you Betty’s Cookery school for letting us come along for wonderful morning of bread making. We also got to go behind the scenes in the Betty’s factory to see all the bread and confectionery being made. Our favorites were the hundreds of french fondants 😀

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.
