Ivy and Jane Charitable Fund
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. Most young carers look after one of their parents or care for a brother or sister. The fund supports requests for activities that the young carer might otherwise miss out on, thereby helping them to have enjoyable childhood experiences. They may also, on an ad hoc basis, consider requests for essential capital items (for example a school uniform).
Please note nominations for the Ivy and Jane Charitable Fund will be considered on a quarterly basis, in line with the following dates. However, any urgent requests where time is limited can be received ad hoc for an expedited decision. If any potential nominations would not be able to keep to the timings laid out, please do get in touch before submitting to discuss timings.
