Family Action Young Carers: Volunteer Drivers

Caring can happen to any one of us. 1 in 12 school aged children take on a caring role for a family member at home, that UK statistics know of, it may be more. The RBWM commission Family Action to provide Young Carer Assessments, targeted group work and respite activities for 5 - 18 year olds, and we are committed to making sure that caring is a positive experience for all young carers and their families. While they continue to provide care, young carers should be able to lead healthy and fulfilling lives.

We are looking for volunteer drivers to help young carers without access to transport to attend young carer groups and school holiday respite activities.

As a volunteer we will support you to use your existing skills and develop new ones while helping to make life better for young carers and their loved ones.

We’re aiming to inspire a team of volunteers to help us reach, identify and support more young carers in RBWM. Whether you have got a few hours to spare or can make an ongoing commitment, there will be a part for you to play.
