Supporting Young Carers in Kent and Medway - Funding and Support from Charitable Organisations
If you are a charity supporting a young carer, you could refer them for funding from our Ivy and Jane Charitable Fund.
The fund is for young carers up to the age of 18 who look after someone who has a disability, illness, mental health condition, or a drug or alcohol problem. Grants can be used towards activities that the young carer might otherwise miss out on, thereby helping them to have enjoyable childhood experiences, such as music lessons, art classes, cinema or theatre trips (or online experiences), as well as essential capital items, for example a school uniform.

In 2021, we're inviting you to join us as we celebrate two decades of connecting people who care with local causes that matter. Throughout the year, we'll be revisiting past projects that we have funded, as well as setting out exciting new plans for the future.
