Hidden from View but not Forgotten - improving the quality of life for young carers looking after terminally-ill siblings
The Jessie May Trust
The group will use the funding to expand its respite service for families caring for terminally ill children at home, helping them cope with the pressures this brings and make the most of their children’s short lives. Nurses take over the child’s care for a few hours so families can take a break and young carers have support to do things they would otherwise miss out on, like spending time with friends. The group will also develop bereavement support specifically tailored to the needs of young carers.
Funding requested: £50,000
