Ivy and Jane Charitable Fund
Nominate a young carer up to the age of 18 who looks 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 awards grants young carers nominated by a professional to be used for activities that the young carer might otherwise miss out on, thereby helping them to have enjoyable childhood experiences. Requests for essential capital items, for example a school uniform (though not laptops), will also be considered.
Examples of professionals that can nominate an individual or family include (but are not limited to): charity employees, social workers, GPs and specialist doctors, occupational therapists or teachers.
